A tank is filled with x pounds of wheat. The tank has a hole at the bottom and each day 1% of the wheat is lost from the tank through the hole.
Quantity A |
Quantity B |
Percentage of wheat lost in the first three days |
3% |
A) Quantity A is greater.
B) Quantity B is greater.
C) The two quantities are equal.
D) The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.
Lets, think the tank has 100 pounds,
So, First Day it lost 1% means 1% of 100 = 1 ;
(we have remaining now 99)
Second Day it lost 1% means 1% of 99 = .99
(we have remaining now 98.01)Third day it lost again 1% means 1% of 98.01 = .9801
NOw Added this we will get 1 + .99 + .9801 = 2.9701 % which is less than 3% .
Answer B
