### A salesman makes a 20 percent commission on the selling price of each set of encyclopedias he sells. If he sells 12 identical sets of encyclopedias and makes \$1,800 in commissions, what is the selling price of each set?

• A.

\$300

• B.

\$600

• C.

\$750

• D.

\$900

• E.

\$1080

C. \$750
Explanation
The salesman makes a 20% commission on each set of encyclopedias he sells. If he sells 12 identical sets and makes \$1,800 in commissions, we can use this information to find the selling price of each set.

Let's assume the selling price of each set is x dollars.

The commission for each set is 20% of x, which is 0.2x dollars.

Since the salesman sells 12 sets, the total commission he earns is 12 times the commission for each set, which is 12 * 0.2x = 2.4x dollars.

Given that the total commission is \$1,800, we can set up the equation 2.4x = 1800 and solve for x.

Dividing both sides by 2.4, we get x = 750.

Therefore, the selling price of each set of encyclopedias is \$750.

### A study based on a random sample revealed that, on average, 2 out of 5 adults have high blood pressure. If these results hold true for the 580,000 adults in City A, approximately how many adults in City A have high blood pressure ?

• A.

116,000

• B.

145,000

• C.

232,000

• D.

250,000

• E.

290,000

C. 232,000
Explanation
Based on the study, it is found that on average, 2 out of 5 adults have high blood pressure. If this average holds true for the 580,000 adults in City A, we can calculate the approximate number of adults in City A with high blood pressure by multiplying the total number of adults by the average proportion.

In this case, 2 out of 5 adults have high blood pressure, so the proportion is 2/5. Multiplying this proportion by the total number of adults in City A (580,000) gives us approximately 232,000 adults in City A who have high blood pressure. Therefore, the correct answer is 232,000.

Rate this question:

### The price of a dress was first discounted by a certain percent and later by 25 percent of the discounted price. If these two discounts are equivalent to a single discount of 40 percent of the original price, what was the first discount ?

• A.

10%

• B.

20%

• C.

30%

• D.

15%

• E.

65%

B. 20%
Explanation
Let's assume the original price of the dress is \$100. The first discount reduces the price by 20%, making it \$80. Then, the second discount of 25% is applied to the discounted price, which is \$80. This discount reduces the price by \$20, making it \$60. Now, we need to find the equivalent single discount that would reduce the original price of \$100 to \$60, which is 40%. Therefore, the first discount was 20%.
