Now let’s put what you learned about interpreting Tabular Data Questions into practice!

The following table shows sales of three separate magazines. There are two versions, the normal version which is 300 pages, and the deluxe edition which is 400 pages. The normal edition costs £8.99 whereas the deluxe edition costs £13.99

Book

Deluxe Edition (+100 pages)

1. Which of the following statements is true?
  • 4
    0

    Explanation

    The correct answer is C.

    Magazine 3 made more revenue through its normal edition than its deluxe edition.

    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)

    There were more sales of deluxe edition than normal copies

    Deluxe: 29 + 25 + 27 = 81

    Normal: 36 + 41 + 61 = 138

    Magazine 1 was more popular than Magazine 2 overall

    Magazine 1 36 + 29 = 65

    Magazine 2 41 + 25 = 66

    The deluxe edition was found to be more cost effective by its customers

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

    Summer months are June to August.

    2. Tick ‘Yes’ if the conclusion does follow. Tick ‘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
    0
    0

    Explanation

    No – Whilst the Employee had higher sales, this does not translate to more profit.

    No – We do not have data to describe sales across the whole year.

    Yes – In June, July, and August, the total sales for Employee A is 345 whereas for Employee B they are 340.

    No – Across the period, Employee A sold 500 and Employee B sold 515 and so they didn’t sell the same number.

    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. Tick ‘Yes’ if the conclusion does follow. Tick ‘No’ if the conclusion does not follow.
    A family booking 25 days before get a £6 discount.
    A student paying on the door pays less than a standard adult ticket
    A child ticket is always half that of an adults.
    A couple bought two tickets for £24 - they must be students.
    A student who had bought an early bird ticket turned up without ID and so paid £37 in total.
    Yes
    No
    1
    10

    Explanation

    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.

    No – They both pay £20.

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

    No – There is more than one possibility for reaching £24 such as two seniors purchasing early bird tickets.

    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.

    stoopid shit

    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. Tick ‘Yes’ if the conclusion does follow. Tick ‘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
    2
    15

    Explanation

    No – The maximum number of hours is 50,000 (50 x 1000). 50000/20 = 250.

    Yes – The maximum number of hours is 50,000. 2100 x 20 + 160 x 50 = 50,000.

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

    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.

    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.

    this question is too confusing and where does the 50000 comes from?

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

    The table shows the data from the incident.

    Food

    Number who ate and were ill Total who ate Number who didn’t eat and were ill Total who did not eat
    Soup 10 10 2

    Chicken Curry

    20 20 7 10
    Apple pie and custard 20 30 0

    0

    6. Tick ‘Yes’ if the conclusion does follow. Tick ‘No’ if the conclusion does not follow.
    Everyone ate apple pie.
    The most likely source of the outbreak is the soup.
    One-third of the group ate chicken curry.
    Two-thirds of the group fell ill.
    The chicken curry was the most popular.
    Yes
    No
    1
    0

    Explanation

    Yes – From the table, 0 people did not eat apple pie.

    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.

    No – From the table, we are told that 20 ate chicken curry and so this is two-thirds of the group.

    No – From the table, we cannot ascertain the total number who fell ill.

    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.

    The table states that 30 people eat the apple pie, and 0 don't eat it; there are 30 people in the group. Therefore we know that apple pie includes everybody, 20 people get ill, so 2/3 of the group get ill. Major skill issue.

    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.

    7. Tick ‘Yes’ if the conclusion does follow. Tick ‘No’ if the conclusion does not follow.
    Berry bushes can only grow blue or black berries.
    Berry bushes only produce berries after two months of growth.
    3 months later, plant 5 will have 20 blue berries on it.
    80% of David’s berry bushes have both blue and black berries.
    2 months later, a plant has 16 blue berries - it must be plant 5.
    Yes
    No
    2
    3

    Explanation

    No – We’re told that the bushes grow these at a constant rate. They could grow different berries at a non-constant rates.

    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.

    Yes – 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.

    No – We’re told three of the five have both which is 60%.

    No – Both Plant 3 and Plant 5 grow blue berries at a rate of 4 a month so it could be plant 3.

    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.

    Tom will be eligible for promotion next year.
    Yes
    No

    Explanation

    Yes – Marion got a performance rating of 1 and was still promoted so cannot be a civil servant.

    No – Only Tim and Dan have a performance ranking above 3 and 2 years of service in their role.

    Yes – Only those with a 3 or above get a bonus and her rating is 1.

    No – We are told that people get a £1k bonus rather than one dependent on performance.

    No – He will be eligible only if he gets a 3 or a 4 in next years’ performance rating.

    A group of artists collectively takes commissions. Each oil painting takes 20 hours and each watercolour takes 15. They are only limited by time.

    9. Which of the following orders can they not fulfil in a month?
  • 0
    7

    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.

    Thu, 22 Jul 2021 22:24:23

    from the first row. it's easiest to use in the calculation because it's the simplest one as you're just doing 200*15 and not adding anything as the oil paintings column is 0 for that one. (I think)

    I didn’t understand what was in the table, is that how many artists there are, or how many orders they can do?

    Damien Medicmind Tutor

    Sat, 11 Sep 2021 09:35:57

    The table shows the number of each type of painting that can be painted in a set amount of time. By multiplying 200 (no. of watercolour paintings) by 15 (hours it takes to paint 1 watercolour) you get 3000hrs which is the max. amount of time they can spend painting. This can also be found by multiplying 150 (no. of oil paintings) by 20hrs (time taken to paint 1 oil painting). As in both of these cases no other time is spent on another painting, hence the max time.

    Jonny’s photos have an introductory offer. For all new customers, first orders are reduced by 40%. On every order there is a flat delivery charge of £3.50. The standard prices are as follows:

    Explanation

    The correct answer is C.

    The reduced price is 0.6 x 10 = £6. This divided by 5 gives £1.20

    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.

    11. Tick ‘Yes’ if the conclusion does follow. Tick ‘No’ if the conclusion does not follow.
    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
    1
    2

    Explanation

    No – It is £35 more expensive rather than 35% more expensive.

    Yes – This is selecting the relevant information from the table 150 + 20 – (100 + 25) = 45.

    Yes – This is selecting the relevant information from the table 150 + 20 – (100 + 25) = 45.

    No – Whilst the prices are very different, this is not a valid conclusion which we can draw.

    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.
