the high rise
Posted on 2006-04-24
While in Canada, I visited a beautiful high-rise building in the Metropolitan City of Toronto. The manager of the building told me that the building consisted of different kinds of apartments large and small. Two room apartments were 5% in number, 21/2's-7% in number, 3's-15% in number, 31/2's-20% in number, 41/2's-49% in number, 5's-33% in number, 51/2's-12% in number, 6's-3% in number and in addition several 4 room apartments. Altogether the building contained 437 apartments.
Can you figure out how many apartments are there in each type, using round figures?
--- the percentages add up to `144% do we have to convert it base first .. i've no clue how to go abt it
