D 30,000 30,000 12

A B C D

Simply divide the annual profit by the number of employees for each company.

Company a has £4,000/employee.

Q2 If the profits per employee remain the same, how many extra employees

would Company B have to recruit to achieve annual profits of £39,000?

6 3 12 4

£3,250/employee. So £39,000 ÷ £3,250 = 12 employees, which is 4 more than

they currently have.

Q3 If an investor purchased Company B, and the profits for each company stayed

the same, how much money would the investor have made after two years?

£27,000 Profit £2,000 Loss £2,700 Profit £52,000 Profit

Cost to buy Company B, we are told, is £25,000. Annual profit we are told is

£26,000. So after two years: -£25,000 + £26,000 + £26,000 = £27,000

Q4 Between 1990 and 2000, what was the increase in energy use for the PC

Room, Meeting Rooms and Office Space combined?

50kWh 184kWh 188kWh Cannot say

In 2000: (21% + 14% + 39%) of 15,000kWh = 11,100

Q5 If the total energy usage today has reduced by 6% compared to that of 2000,

by how much has today’s usage reduced when compared to 1990?

82.9% 20.1% 17.8% Cannot say

14,150.9kWh. This compares with 1990 levels as follows: 17,000 ÷ 14,150.9 =

1.201. The reduction to get from 17,000 to 14,150.9 is therefore 20.1%. The

question refers to total energy use; remember the answers are based only on the

information given, so don’t click Cannot Say thinking that we aren’t given data for

all energy use in the world.

Q6 Which space experienced the smallest change in energy use between 1990

and 2000?

Kitchen Print Room Meeting Rooms PC Room

We can rule out PC Room and Kitchen by inspection. However, the 1990 level and

2000 level will need to be worked out for every other space listed as a possible

answer.

Q7 Approximately, what percentage of the people sampled are unemployed?

7% 5% 6% 4%

Total people sampled = 1,343,000 + 1,031,000 = 2,374,000

97,000 ÷ 2,374,000 = 4.086%

every year, but the number of males stays the same, what percent of IT

employees would be female after a three year period?

54.1% 53.5% 85.0% 45.5%

If female employees rises by 10%, that gives 142,417 after three years.

142,417 out of (now 263,417 IT employees) = 54.07%

Q10 What was the average accident cost per vehicle on the road in Ribley in

November?

£0.23 £0.47 £15.40 £2.30

‘Per vehicle on the road’ is the key, as this is not what is given in the far right

column.

Total accidents cost in Ribley = 10 x £1,900 = £19,000. Number of vehicles on

road = 81,000. So £19,000 ÷ 81,000 = £0.2346

Q11 Comparing Wartop with Surren, what was the difference in accident cost per

vehicle on the road in October?

3.4p 6.4p £64.60 £0.70

Surren: (£1,050 per accident x 9 accidents) ÷ 119,000 = £0.0794

Difference = £0.064

Q12 What was the average accident cost per vehicle on road in all three towns in

September?

£0.17 £0.32 £0.94 £20.50

£90,000. Total number of vehicles on road = 76,000 + 101,000 + 104,000 =

281,000. So £90,000 ÷ 281,000 = £0.320.

0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% 100%

Q13 In 1996, total output of all fuels was 200TWh. If output for Nuclear in 2006

was twice that for Coal in 1996, what was the output for Nuclear in 2006?

140TWh 400TWh 64TWh 96TWh

Coal in 1996 was 35% of 200TWh: 70TWh. So Nuclear in 2006 is twice this:

140TWh.

Q14 Now if instead, Renewables output doubled to 18TWh between 1996 and

2006, approximately what was the Gas output in 1996?

129TWh 86TWh 120TWh 110TWh

So in 2006, Renewables was 18TWh, which was double what it was in 1996:

9TWh. Therefore, if 9TWh is 3% of the total (according to chart), total in 1996

was 300TWh. Gas we are told made up 43% in 1996, i.e. 0.43 x 300TWh =

129TWh.

Q15 If total output was 200TWh in 1996 and 320TWh in 2006, what was Gas

output in 2001?

107TWh 133TWh 120TWh Cannot say

False Advertsement 1.5 1

Poor Customer Service 12 15

Other 2 3

Q16 Total refunds last year totalled 912. This year saw a 20% increase in the

number of total refunds. Approximately how many refunds were issued this year

due to Delivery Damage?

102 104 124 1040

Total refunds for last year: 912, so for this year add 20%:1094.4. Of this 8%

were refunded due to delivery damage = 103.97.

Q17 If refunds last year totalled 800 and there had been a 15% increase in the

number of refunds due to Faulty Hardware compared to the year before last,

approximately how many complaints were received in this category in the year

before last?

186 215 285 243

Total last year: 800, of which 41% were due to faulty hardware = 328. This is a

15% increase on the year before last. So 328 ÷ 1.15 = 285.2

Q18 If refunds totalled 912 last year and 840 this year, by what percentage did

Faulty Hardware refunds increase between the two years?

7.8% 2.8% 79.1% 11.0%

This year = 840 x 48% = 403.2

Increase = 403.2 ÷ 373.9 = 7.84%

£55 £75 £130 £300

Q20 Approximately How many Euros was 85 Russian Rubles worth in May 1995?

Є2.46 Є2,933 Є1,900 Cannot say

You have to convert both Euros and Rubles to a common reference (we’ll use

Pounds). So 85 Rubles = 85 x 0.020 = £1.7. We are told one Euro is worth

£0.69, so £1.7 must be worth €2.464.

Q21 Approximately how many more Canadian Dollars would you get for 100 UK

Pounds Sterling than you would for 120 US Dollars?

CAD$35 CAD$5 4 CAD$60 CAD$62

120 US = (120 ÷ 0.87) = 137.93 CAD

Q22 How many cars under 2,000kg were there in France in 1995?

Q23 What was the combined mass of all the cars in the UK in 2000?

211,000kg 858,500kg 1,426,500kg Cannot Say

Don’t be tempted to start adding anything up. Because the data is grouped, we

don’t know how many cars are at the bottom end of the group, and how many

are towards the top.

Q24 In the UK, what was the percentage increase in the total number of cars

between 1995 and 2000?

15.0% 16.6% 32.1% 58.0%

1995: 4 + 21 + 292 + 420 + 71 = 808 (thousand)

2000: 9 + 32 + 341 + 495 + 65 = 942 (thousand)

942 ÷ 808 = 1.166.

Q25 How many live births occurred in 1985 in Greece and Australia together?

21,200 748,200 1,051,000 Cannot say

Greece: 28.5 (million) x 13.2 (per 1000) = 376,200

Australia: 46.5 (million) x 8.0 (per 1000) = 372,000

Total = 748,200.

Q26 Which country had the highest number of people aged under 15 at the start

of 1985?

UK France Australia Germany

Immediately from the possible answers we can neglect Greece in our working.

UK: 56.6 x 19% = 10.754

France: 55.2 x 21% = 11.592

Australia: 46.5 x 17% = 7.905

Q29 For all the shops combined, which month showed the largest decrease in PC

sales over the previous month?

Jan Feb Mar Apr

We have to sum for every month, even though we have no data for Dec and

therefore Jan cannot be the answer.

Jan: 8 + 20 + 5 + 10 = 43

Feb: 10 + 20 + 4 + 14 = 48

Mar: 13 + 18 + 6 + 18 = 55

Apr: 10 + 16 + 8 + 19 = 53

April was the only month where sales droped.

Q30 Approximately what percentage of Regal PC’s sales were made in April?

21% 22% 24% 28%

April = 10. So 10 ÷ 41 = 24.4%.

Q31 If the average profit made on each PC sold by Quick PC over all four months

was £62 what was the total profit over the four months for this shop?

£3,144 £3,782 £3,857 Cannot say

£62 = £3,782

2003: 1,800 x 36% = 648

Q33 What was the increase in the number of graduates in employment between

2002 and 2004?

99 84 98 Cannot say

2004: 1,900 x 41% = 779

Increase = 99

Q34 62% of all social science graduates in 2003 found employment. If social

science graduates accounted for 20% of all graduates entering employment,

approximately how many social science students did not enter employment in

2003?

41 50 63 86

are told that of these, 20% are social science graduates (i.e. 140.4). We are told

the 140.4 accounts for only 62% of all social science graduates. Therefore total

social science graduates = 226.5, of which 140.4 entered employment.
