From Lucy: Hi,
The question is:
Sri Lanka 52%
Why is the following statement true for the data above: More than half of the people said they were interested in Sri Lanka. The reason I don't understand the problem is that because the percentages add up to be greater than 100%, that means that the 500 people(as stated in the question) who participated in the survey got to pick more than once. Therefore, it is not 52% out of 100% anymore.
Thanks for taking the time to answer my question. Answered by Robert Dawson.

I want to work out how much money I'm saving just by knowing how many rows of coins there are. If i can work out how many coins there are just by knowing how many rows I have I can just divide by 2 to find out the amount in dollars.
