Explanation

Find Airline B's rating for convenience (8.0) and Airline A's rating for convenience (5.1).







CategoryABC
Convenience5.18.04.3
Friendliness5.05.55.4
Price5.06.43.5
Promptness6.56.94.1
Reliability7.87.54.9
Total:29.434.322.2


Determine the increase: 8.0 – 5.1 = 2.9
Now we find the percent change and round to the nearest whole number: Percent change = increase ÷ original number × 100 → 2.9 ÷ 5.1 × 100 = 56.86% or 57%.

Hence option D is correct.

Because you cannot subtract 5.1 - 8.0 that is a negative number. You subtract A from B: B - A = 8 - 5.1. And A is 5.1.

Hope this helps

Airline B ‘s average rating for convenience was approximately what percent greater than Airline A ‘s average rating for convenience?

A) 30%

B) 36%

C) 40%

D) 57%

E) 64%


Company B's average was 8.0
Company A's average was 5.1

8.0/5.1 = 1.57

1.57 is the fractional form of 157% so 8.0 is 157% of 5.1. 8.0 hence is 57% greater than 5.1

Answer D
