Rideland - Question II## Hi Brent, question for you.

Ex: in the last question, we solved for the total population in 1976 based off the given info. For this question, I used that number and I calculated the population for 1992, and took the percent for French visitors of each year and did precent increase change to get my answer.

I know you said you don’t need to know the population values in the question to solve this type of question, but I was just curious if these type of questions tend to appear first when doing data interpretation, this way I have a better game plan on time management.

THANKS!!

I'd say that it's somewhat rare to be able to use information from a former DI question to answer another question.

## Hello Brent !

Just a quick question about 33 1/3 % how did you get to that number, thank you ?

Our goal is to covert the fraction 1/3 into a percent.

The following video covers this kind of conversion: https://www.greenlighttestprep.com/module/gre-arithmetic/video/1077

One option is to use the fact that we can quickly convert decimals to percents by moving the decimal point 2 spaces to the right. For example:

0.14 = 14%

0.532 = 53.2%

0.08 = 8%

2.1432 = 214.32%

Through long division, we know that 1/3 = 0.3333333333....

So, 0.3333333333... = 33.33333333....%

= 33 1/3 %

Does that help?

Cheers,

Brent
