3. A team of clothing workers had an output of 1,000 uniforms per week. This
output was increased by 20%, which demanded an increase of 50 uniforms per worker.
How many workers are there on the team?
(A) 4 (B) 15 (C) 20 (D) 24

Can someone explain why its 4 and not 24?

My thinking is if the output has been increased by 20% it should be 1200 and if its 50 uniforms per worker I just do 1200/50= 24 but apparently its 4 since you have to divide the 200 by the 50. Can someone explain why or just reword it?
