Q1: Since the total private donation for child safety in Sept 1989 is a bit more than 9 mln, we should divide \(9^+\) by 38 to get roughly 0.236, which in million is 236,842 that is near to D since the answers are very spread apart. Answer D.

Q2: it's again a matter of estimation. The ratio between homeless and animal rights in September 1985 to December 1989 is computed as 300/230 mln = 1.3. Among the answers, 4/3 = 1.3 thus the answer is C.

Q3: Using the formula of the percent increase, it's easy to check that Child Safety got the highest increase from September 1989 to October 1989. Answer E.

Thank you very much for you and Carcass for all solutions and questions you are presenting here. But regarding question 2 above, why you did not use Starting value - the decreasing value / starting value formula?

First of all this is not A Powerprep software question but from Princeton. The tag was wrong. I guess it was changed when several months ago all the tags of the board were messed up.

Also the OA is not D but B.

So break down the increase in every department
Animal Rights- 2.5mil to 3 mil- 20% increase
Disaster relief-1.5mil to 2mil- 33% increase
Homeless Aid- 3mil to 3.5mil- 16.7% increase
Enviornmental protection- 4mil to 4.5mil- 12.5% increase
Child Safety- 9.25mil to 10mil- 8% increase

Which means child safety was increased the least, proportinally. Hence answer is E
