Can someone help me with the following question.
A firm has y% manufacturing capacity. It plans to increase its capacity by x%. Will it have enough capacity for next year?
1) y.(100-x) = 5040
2) y-x = 100

Guest wrote:I may think about this wrong. I was thinking that if the max capacity is 100%, i.e. y = 100%, then increasing it by any x% will not be possible because y is 100% and capacity can't go above that.
B says that the difference between the two is 100, so it implies that y% is always greater than 100% (we can consider that y% is 120%, and x% is 20% or y% is 130 and x is 30% so the difference is always 100).
If B says that y% is greater than 100%, no matter what x% is, there will not be enough capacity. So I picked B.
Am I thinking completely wrong on this?
