Here's the table:

Coffee chain - 60% of followers
Local coffee shop - 24% of followers
Speciality coffee shop - 16% of followers

60%x100= 60
24%x100= 24
16%x100= 16

60-16= 44% followers

I am not that sure about it. I hope it’s can help in someways

Hello
So I am also trying to work this out and from what I can tell the question is asking you to compare how many people are in the Coffee chain and how many or in the speciality. So for this to be solvable you will need to first figure out or better yet told as part of the question. But that doesn't seem to have been the case, the total number of people that all three categories combined total.

Then if you knew the total number all three groups combined equalled to you could then do that figure take away 24% on a calculator or if this for a non calc question for example 24% of 100 is 24 so for the 24% of say 200 you would times the 24 by 2 then take the answer away (48 ) from the 200.

Which in this example would leave 152. You would then do the same again for the lowest number that is actually apart of the question. By which I mean in this case you would work out 16% of 200 ( 32), then deduct that answer in this case 32 from 152. The result being 152 take away 32 equals 120. So in this example there would be 120 more people who use the Coffee chain versus 32 who use the speciality Coffee shops.

Unfortunately without knowing what the physically number/ total that 100% or all three equals to I have no idea which of the possible answers it could be. Instinctively I want to rule out 11066 but that's only because it is the highest number. But to try and help let me list the following based on the possible answers.

Using a calculator and assuming the answers are the 60% (Coffee chain ):
220 plus 40% equals 308 for 100%
7714 plus 40% equals 10, 779.6 ( 100, 780 rounded up)
7813 plus 40% equals 10, 938 rounded
9054 plus 40% equals 12, 676 rounded
11066 plus 40% equals 15,492 rounded.

Unfortunately like I said without knowing the total number of people/ fans that the 100% equals to I have no idea which possible answer the correct one is.

Thanks so much for trying.
