Looking at the chart we can observe that weights are used 25% of the time
and elliptical machine is used 5% of the time combine % use for both= 30%
Looking back at the chart only Bicycle and glider combine for 30%

First determine what the question is asking- two machines same as weights and elliptical, which is 30%. Since they are from the same graph, we can simply add them up without converting to actual hours.
Now, backsolving is easier in this case and saves time because the questions and options are asking to choose from the given options, rather than 'build' our own.
A: 32%
B: 33%
C: 30% --> Answer
D: 45%
E: 27%

I also suggest that as soon as you reach C, you can select the answer and come back to make sure D and E weren't right. This saves time on actual test day
