## Comment on

Gigacorp Managers## Tricky I would have chosen 60

## Agreed!

Agreed!

## Why dint we do 60/250 ?

## Great question!

Great question!

If you feel the answer is 60/250, then you are answering a different question from the one that is asked.

Among the 250 managers at Gigacorp, 60 are females with MBAs.

so, IF the question were "What percent of ALL MANAGERS are females with MBAs?", then the correct answer would be 60/250

However, the question actually asks "What percent of the FEMALE MANAGERS have MBAs?"

There are 150 FEMALE MANAGERS

Among those 150 FEMALE MANAGERS, 60 have MBAs

60/150 = 40%

Does that help?

Cheers,

Brent

Since this is the first practice question following the Double Matrix lesson, I completed the entire diagram to reinforce the technique.

Cheers, Brent

The "Double Josh in Army Lovely method"? Why do you call it that?

To answer your questions...
