In this post we will discuss questions based on
Tabular Form from Different Types of Data Interpretation questions

We all know how important Data Interpretation Questions are in SBI PO, IBPS, SSC Exams. The weightage of
marks on Different Types of Data Interpretation Questions varies from 10-45.
One of the most important question that is asked from Different types of Data
Interpretation is on Interpreting the Tabular Form. This post will help you
solve different types of questions that are asked from tabular form of Data
Interpretation

In our previous post Data Interpretation I: Data Interpretation Tricks to SolveData Interpretation Questions, we discussed the meaning and
definition of Data Interpretation and few tricks to solve Data Interpretation
question. In this post we will discuss little tips and tricks to solve
questions on Tabular form of Data Interpretation.

Model 1: Tabular Form

Tabular
form or Tables is an easy area to score marks in the aptitude
section of IBPS, SBI PO and SSC exams. One or two problems in the exam are asked on Tabular
form of Data Interpretation.

A
tabular form is a representation of data in a table format. It is easy and
convenient to represent data in a tabular form. The data is present in rows and
columns and one can draw conclusions from it easily. It is the most organized
method to represent data.

Let us
now look at the different types of Data Interpretation questions that are asked
from the tabular form.

Problem
I: Total 24500 people who are in the given profession and
(of these) percentage of female and males.
Question
1: What is the ratio of total number of males in the
medical and teaching profession together to the ratio of females in the
same professions together?

*Tip:
Ratio is the comparison of like terms in its simplest form.

Solution:
Step 1:
As we
need to find the ratios, we use the formula
Males (
Medical + Teaching): Female ( Medical + Teaching)

Step 2:
By
substituting the values in the above formula
(40% x
11%x 24500)+(20% x 21% x 24500) : (60% x
11% x 24500)+(80% x 21% x 24500)

Step 3:
By
eliminating 24500 and percentage as it is common, according to the concept of
ratio we get,
(40 x
11) + (20 x 21) : (60 x 11) + (80 x 21)

Step 4:
By
Simplification,
22 + 21
: 33 + 84
=
43 : 117

Therefore,
The ratio of total number of Males:Females in the medical and teaching
profession together is 43:117

*Note:
Don't write the steps during examination as it consumes a lot of time.
Directly jump to the step 3 as 24,500 is common and step 2 can directly be
eliminated.

Question
2: Total number of people in teaching profession is what
percent of total number of people in law?

*Tip-In
this question we are suppose to find the percentage change

Solution:
Step 1:
As we
need to find the percentage change, we need to use percentage formula
x is
what of % of y = (x/y)100 [Formula]
X-Total
number of people in teaching program
Y-
Total number of people in law

Step 2:
By
substitution,
(Total
number of people in teaching program/ total number of people in law) x100

Step 3:
By
substituting values in the above formula,
(21% x
24500/24% of 24500) x 100

Step 4:
By
simplification,
21/24 x
100

Step 5:
By
simplification,
7/8 x
100
= 87.5%

Therefore, the
total percentage of people in teaching profession is 87.5% of the total
percentage of total people in law.

Question
3: What is the total number of males from all the
profession together?
1)
11472 2)12784 3)12348 4)12453 5) None of these

Solution:
Step
1:
As we
need to find the total number of males in all the profession, we are suppose to
take (the percentage of males in one profession x percentage of total number of
people in that profession x total number of people) and thus we need to add all
the values together.

(40% of 11% of 24500)+(70% of 18%of 24500)+(55% of 24% of 24500)+(20% of 21% of
24500)+ (65% of 16% of 24500)+(56% of 10% of 24500)

Step
2:
By
Simplification,
(40 x
11) + (70 x 18) + (55 x 24) + (20 x 21) + (65 x 16) + (56 x 10)
= 5040

Therefore
the answer is Option 5 - None of these.

In
examination on average about 30 to 36 seconds are allotted to solve a question.
Though this question appears to be simple the process of calculation is really
lengthy as we cannot eliminate any number. The quickest way to solve this
question is to skip the question or else leave the question for the end.

Question
4: The female in the Engineering profession are what
percent of males in the management profession.
1)
71.71 2) 96.43 3) 83.16 4)68.54 5) None of these

Solution:
Step
1:
As we
need to find the percentage change, we use the percentage formula,
x is
what percent of y = x/y x 100
x- Females of Engineering
y-Males of Management

Step 2:
By
using the percentage formula in finding out the female engineering profession
percentage to male percentage in management profession
Females
of Engineering/Males of Management x 100

Step
3:
By
substituting the values in the formulas,
30% of
18% of 24500/56 x 10 x 24500

Step 4:
By
simplification,
30 x 18
/56 x 10 x 100

Step 5:
By
simplification
54/56
X 100
=
96.43%

Therefore, the answer is option 2 - 96.3%.

Remember
don't waste your time in writing down steps. Directly jump to step 4 and
eliminate all unnecessary steps.Solve this sum on the bases of assumption, it
will help you to save some time.

Question
5: What is the ratio of number of males in the banking
profession to the number of males in the engineering profession.

Solution:
Step 1:
We use
the formula as we need to find the ratio of males in banking to ratio of males
in Engineering
Males
(Banking) : Males
( Engineering)

Step 2:
By
substituting the values in the formulas,
65% x
16% of 24500 : 70% x
18% of 24500

Step
3:
By
simplification,
65 x 16 : 70 x 18

Step 4:
By
Simplification,
52 : 63

Therefore,
the ratio of number of males in the banking profession to the number of males
in engineering profession is 52:63.
