Re: Puzzle

Though the number is unrealistic, the correct answer is 97.2 managers is 98%. So the managers to be kicked out is 99-97.2 approx 1.8 to round it, it is 2.

Re: Puzzle

98% managers in the room makes it 98% of total. If I say there are 100 people in a room and 98% are managers...

50 is the accepted answer now.
But if i put this on goal seek in excel, i get that 50.7 managers need to stay. Could some one pass this on to Satya Nadella.

Re: Puzzle

Ok. 50 is right whole number.

If it was possible to reduce the number in fractions, are there more answers possible (mathematically accurate without round/ceil/floor/etc.)?
