Explanation

What percent of the students are not majoring in Humanities (33%), Social sciences (30%), or Physical sciences (24%)?
33% + 30% + 24% + ? = 100%
87% + ? = 100%
? = 13%

If the the total enrollment is 1400 students, then 13% of 1400 is how many students?

13% of 1400 is how many students?
0.13 × 1400 = ?
182 = ?

Hence option C is correct.

The right-side graphic tells us the percentage of students in majoring in humanities, social sciences, or physical sciences.
33% + 30% + 24% = 87%, which means 13% of the student population (of 1400 students) is UNACCOUNTED FOR.
Those students that are unaccounted for are the students who are NOT majoring in humanities, social sciences, or physical sciences

So, 13% of the 1400 students are NOT majoring in humanities, social sciences, or physical sciences
13% of 1400 = 182
