14% of a company’s inventory shipped. If the company held on to 170,280 items then approximately how many items did they ship?

(A) 21,000

(B) 22,500

(C) 28,000

(D) 30,000

(E) 32,500

Kudos for correct solution.

From the statement we know 14% is shipped and 86% is left which equal to 170280

if x= total no. of items

then 0.86x = 170280

or x= 198000

Now 14% * x = 0.14 * 198000 = 27720 nearly equals to 28000. That is option C
