So you are intelligent eh? Accept challenge?

A question I came across yesterday:

“There are 100 employees in a conference room in New York City. You note that 99% of them are managers. How many managers would need to leave the conference in order to reduce the percentage of managers in the hall to 98%?”

No ‘Googling’! Happy Friday.

    Haha. Trick Question. 0.98 = 98/100 = 49/50. So 50 of them have to leave the room.

    100%= 100 people. 99/100 are mangers therefore 1 manager has to reduce the number of managers to 98%
