Re: Can someone help me with a math problem?
You can't take exam II unless you pass I?
I'd go with D.

I got 448 like the first dude here:
http://translate.google.com/translat...ed=0CEIQ7gEwAQ Don't understand how you get 565, though. 
Re: Can someone help me with a math problem?
I got (A).
All of division A has failed at least 2 exams: 138*2 = 276 Those who took exam II (42 people) must have taken exam I first: 276 + 42 = 318 Those who took exam III (65 people) must have taken exams I and II first: 318 + 65*2 = 448 
Re: Can someone help me with a math problem?
You were on the right track, you forgot 2 important steps. Add 138 (total number of trainees) and then subtract 21 (trainees who failed that year).
You get 565. 
Re: Can someone help me with a math problem?
with a calculator, i did:
27+27+27 4+4 35+35+35+35 7+7+7 55+55+55+55+55 10+10+10+10  565

Alright , 4 more guys to say the same answer and we can call it a wrap.

Re: Can someone help me with a math problem?
This one has been driving me crazy too.
Now it's a huge trouble to do all the work, so I'm just going to ask you guys if you would approach it the same way I did. Which is for example Euro, I would take 1 and divide by 1.52 and 1.64 and see the difference of that. Do it for all currencies and see which number is the smallest? Or do you just subtract the 1.64 and 1.52? (Seems too easy) I've been out of school too long to remember proportional change :banghead: By the way, this is not homework or anything. It's prep for numerical tests  you do them when you apply for a banking job. And you get 1 minute for each problem. 
Re: Can someone help me with a math problem?
I would just subtract, but yeah it just seems too easy.

Re: Can someone help me with a math problem?
The correct answer is subtract and compare. Its that easy.

Re: Can someone help me with a math problem?
I'm pretty sure that's a question from a numerical test for graduate entry level jobs? I've done the same question before.
edit: lol didn't see the second question. Best of luck with these tests! If you get through to interview they randomly retest people too so it's best to make sure you can do these yourself as well 
Re: Can someone help me with a math problem?
I think the answer to the second question is A quickly subtracting.

Re: Can someone help me with a math problem?
Wouldn't proportional change be the percentage change relative to the base year 1?
EUR: +7.89% USD: 9.38% JPY: +20.25% AUD: +6.27% CHF: 7.69% HKD: 8.94% MYR: 28.29% The smallest absolute value change being AUD?
