 Simple math (the wording is confusing me) 3. A team of clothing workers had an output of 1,000 uniforms per week. Thisoutput 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) 24Can 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? Read 123 times 3 Replies
