    Explanation

    Normal Edition

    61 x 8.99 = £548.39 (Could estimate by doing 60 x 10 = £600)

    Deluxe Edition

    27 x 13.99 = £377.73 (Could estimate by doing 30 x 14 = £420)

    Deluxe: 29 + 25 + 27 = 81

    Normal: 36 + 41 + 61 = 138

    Magazine 1 36 + 29 = 65

    Magazine 2 41 + 25 = 66

    The table shows sales from Company X last year in terms of items sold.

    Summer months are June to August.

    2 Place ‘Yes’ if the conclusion does follow. Place ‘No’ if the conclusion does not follow.
    Employee B made more profit over the whole period.
    Employee A sold 125 more across the whole year.
    Employees A sold more in the summer months.
    Employees A and B sold the same number of items in total.
    In combination, Employees A&B sold 1000+ items in these months.
    Yes
    No
    1
    3

    Explanation

    Statement 1:

    The correct answer is no. Whilst the Employee had higher sales, this does not translate to more profit.

    Statement 2:

    The correct answer is no. We do not have data to describe sales across the whole year.

    Statement 3:

    The correct answer is yes. In June, July, and August, the total sales for Employee A is 345 whereas for Employee B they are 340.

    Statement 4:

    The correct answer is no. Across the period, Employee A sold 500 and Employee B sold 515 and so they didn’t sell the same number.

    Statement 5: 

    The correct answer is yes. Across the period, Employee A sold 500 and Employee B sold 515 and so they sold 1015 in total.

    • All prices in £.
    • An adult is 18+
    • Students must present a valid ID or pay an adult on the door price.
    • A senior is 65+
    • A family is 2 adults and 2 children.
    • Early Bird Tickets are available until 30 days before the event.
    • Standard tickets are available until the day before the event.
    3 Place ‘Yes’ if the conclusion does follow. Place ‘No’ if the conclusion does not follow.
    Yes
    No
    2
    0

    Explanation

    Statement 1:

    The correct answer is yes. They would be purchasing standard tickets. 20 x 2 + 8 x 2 = 56 which is £6 more than the £50 paid for a standard family ticket.

    Statement 2:

    The correct answer is no. They both pay £20.

    Statement 3:

    The correct answer is no. For both Standard and On The Door tickets the cost of child tickets is less than half that of an adult.

    Statement 4:

    The correct answer is no. There is more than one possibility for reaching £24 such as two seniors purchasing early bird tickets.

    Statement 5: 

    The correct answer is yes. Initially the student would have paid £12. They then would have had to purchase an adult on the door ticket for £25, paying £37 in total.

    Explanation

    Statement 1:

    The correct answer is no. They scored 400 points and conceded 475.

    Statement 2:

    The correct answer is yes. They conceded 75 in January and scored 75 in May.

    Statement 3:

    The correct answer is yes. They conceded 75 in January and scored 75 in May.

    Statement 4:

    The correct answer is no. The highest scoring month shown is July but we do not know about the other months.

    Statement 5: 

    The correct answer is no. They scored 100 in September which is the same as 25 + 75 (the scores in March and May combined).

     

    Post Comment

    A company produces two cars – Model X and Model T. One Model T takes 50 hours to complete. One Model X takes 20 hours to make. The table shows some combinations which utilise the maximum available hours of labour.. Time is the only limiting factor.

    Model T

    Model X

    1000

    0

    500

    1250

    200

    2000

    100

    2250

    5 Place ‘Yes’ if the conclusion does follow. Place ‘No’ if the conclusion does not follow.
    An order of 2600 Model X alone in a month can be completed.
    A target of 2100 Model X and 160 Model T is possible.
    A target of 150 model T and 2000 Model X would leave workers idle.
    If 750 Model T are made, more model X are produced.
    The maximum number of Model X produced whilst still making Model T is 2498
    Yes
    No
    0
    0

    Explanation

    Statement 1:

    The correct answer is no. The maximum number of hours is 50,000 (50 x 1000). 50000/20 = 250.

    Statement 2:

    The correct answer is yes. The maximum number of hours is 50,000. 2100 x 20 + 160 x 50 = 50,000.

    Statement 3:

    The correct answer is yes. The maximum number of hours is 50,000. 2000 x 20 + 150 x 50 = 47,500. This leaves 2500 hours spare.

    Statement 4:

    The correct answer is no. The maximum number of hours is 50,000. 750 x 50 = 37500, 50000-37500 = 12500. 12500/20 = 625 so fewer Model X are produced.

    Statement 5: 

    The correct answer is no. For the maximum of Model X, 1 model T would be made. Therefore (50000-50)/20 = 2497.5. As you can’t have half a car, you round down giving 2497.

    There was an outbreak of food poisoning on a hospital ward.

    Yes
    No

    0

    Explanation

    Statement 1:

    The correct answer is yes. From the table, 0 people did not eat apple pie.

    Statement 2:

    The correct answer is yes. From the table, the option which has the highest percentage of those became ill and the lowest number of people who were ill without eating it, the soup is the most likely source.

    Statement 3:

    The correct answer is no. From the table, we are told that 20 ate chicken curry and so this is two-thirds of the group.

    Statement 4:

    The correct answer is no. From the table, we cannot ascertain the total number who fell ill.

    Statement 5: 

    The correct answer is no. We’ve seen before that 100% of people ate apple pie whereas 66% of people ate the chicken curry and so the Apple Pie is more popular.

    David plants berry bushes in his garden. They grow blue and black berries at a constant rate without shedding any. At planting, they had 0 berries of any colour.

    Yes
    No

    Explanation

    Statement 1:

    The correct answer is no. We’re told that they have 0 berries at planting and the numbers from the table after 2 months but not that these are the first fruits.

    Statement 2:

    The correct answer is no. We’re told that they grow berries at a constant rate. Plant 5 has grown 8 in 2 months so grow them at a rate of 4 a month and so after 5 months will have grown 20 blue berries.

    Statement 3:

    The correct answer is yes. We’re told three of the five have both which is 60%.

    Statement 4:

    The correct answer is no. Both Plant 3 and Plant 5 grow blue berries at a rate of 4 a month so it could be plant 3.

    It would not allow me to put my answers in

    Civil servants are promoted depending on their performance rating. A department rates all its civil servants between 1 and 4 for their bonus allocation with 4 as highest and 1 as lowest. Civil servants are only eligible for promotion after two years of service in the same job and if they got a 3 or a 4 in their most recent performance review. All civil servants receive a £1k bonus if they receive a 3 or above in their performance review. The following table shows the employment record of some individuals. Years of service refers to their current role.

    Marion cannot be a civil servant.
    3 people are eligible for promotion.
    If she is a civil servant, Jenna is not going to receive a bonus this year.
    Tim will receive the largest bonus this year.
    Tom will be eligible for promotion next year.
    Yes
    No
    1
    0

    Explanation

    Statement 1:

    The correct answer is yes. Marion got a performance rating of 1 and was still promoted so cannot be a civil servant.

    Statement 2:

    The correct answer is no. Only Tim and Dan have a performance ranking above 3 and 2 years of service in their role.

    Statement 3:

    The correct answer is yes. Only those with a 3 or above get a bonus and her rating is 1.

    Statement 4:

    The correct answer is no. We are told that people get a £1k bonus rather than one dependent on performance.

    Statement 5: 

    The correct answer is no. He will be eligible only if he gets a 3 or a 4 in next years’ performance rating.

    9 Which of the following orders can they not fulfil in a month?
  • 0

    Explanation

    The correct answer is B. They have 200 x 15 hours which is 3000.

    148 x 20 + 3 x 15 = 3005 and so they cannot fulfil it within a month.

    Troy and Gabriella are planning their wedding. They have a list of items which they want to put on a wedding list. The following table shows the cost of various items at two department stores All prices are in pound sterling.

    The bread maker is 35% more expensive at House of frazier
    The dinner set is 33% cheaper at House of frazier
    If a person buys the drill and the dinner set, it is £45 cheaper in House of Frazier
    The breadmakers must be different models
    Overall Jack Louis is cheaper
    Yes
    No
    0
    0

    Explanation

    Statement 1:

    The correct answer is no. It is £35 more expensive rather than 35% more expensive.

    Statement 2 & 3:

    The correct answer is yes. This is selecting the relevant information from the table 150 + 20 – (100 + 25) = 45.

    Statement 4:

    The correct answer is no. Whilst the prices are very different, this is not a valid conclusion which we can draw.

    Statement 5: 

    The correct answer is yes. If all the prices in the table are added together, Jack Louis is cheaper – this can be done by inspection as some of the House of Frazier are significantly more.
