This comparison emphasizes the lower price point of your product, which can be a significant factor for customers when making a purchase decision. By positioning your product as less expensive, you are directly addressing the price difference between your product and the competitor's, making it a compelling reason for customers to choose your product over theirs.

    Correct Answer
    C. 450
    Explanation
    To be successful, Mr. Ortiz needs to interview 90% of his assigned households, which is 90% of 500. To find this, we can multiply 500 by 0.90, which gives us 450. Therefore, the minimum number of people he must interview is 450.

    • D.

      920

    Correct Answer
    A. 960
    Explanation
    To find 80% of 1200, we multiply 1200 by 0.8. This can be done by multiplying 1200 by 8 and then dividing the result by 10. So, 1200 multiplied by 8 is 9600, and dividing that by 10 gives us the answer of 960.

    B. 29
    Explanation
    The pattern in the series is that each number is obtained by adding the previous number with a specific increment. In this case, the increment is increasing by 2 each time. Starting with 11, we add 2 to get 13, then add 2 again to get 15, and so on. However, in the missing number, the increment is not followed and it is decreased by 2 instead. Therefore, the missing number is 29.
