10.d)

Solution
1.Required ratio = 40 : 35 = 8 : 7

2.Required average
= (15 + 25 + 30 + 40 + 15 + 10)/6
= 22.5 thousand

3.Required %increase = [(25 - 10)/10] × 100 = 150%

4.Laptops manufactured by Apple, Lenovo and Samsung in 2010
= (15 + 40 + 25) = 80 thousand
Laptops manufactured by Dell, HP and Abascus in 2011
= (15 + 25 + 35) = 75 thousand
Difference = 5000

5.Abascus = 35000

6.Number of employees in public relations department in:
Scale I = 175
Scale II = 150
Difference = (175 - 150) = 25
Required% = (25/175) × 100 = 14.29% (approx)

7.Number of employees in personnel department
= (225 + 120 + 75 + 40 + 25 + 4)
= 489
Number of employees in Scale II = 120
Required% = (120/489) × 100 = 25% (approx)

8.Total number of Scale IV employees
= (40 + 126 + 144 + 60 + 30 + 50)
= 450
Required% = (126/450) × 100 = 28%

9.Number of employees in scale III
= (75 + 250 + 320 + 120 + 85 + 100)
= 950
Number of employees in scale IV
= (40 + 126 + 144 + 60 + 30 + 50)
= 450
Required ratio = 950 : 450 = 19 : 9

10.Total number of employees in scale I
= (225 + 725 + 750 + 300 + 325 + 175)
= 2500
Total number of employees in scale VI
= (4 + 20 + 28 + 15 + 8 + 5)
= 80
percent = 3.2%
