# Table data — Harder example

Watch Sal work through a harder Table data problem.

## Want to join the conversation?

• this question was actually pretty easy, compared to the other hard examples
• why is it so easy in videos and practice but never on the real thing
• That is a closely held secret of the council of test makers.
• why do we multiply 1/4 by 5?
• You don't actually have to find 20. If 5 is 1/4 then that means that 3/4 is 3 5s. Then add the 5s together and then add 15 and 4.
• im confused. if 1/4 of her fav paintings are blue, and she has 24 fav paintings total, then wouldn't 6 paintings be blue? and wouldn't the answer then be 18?
• 1/4 of her fav large paintings are blue. Does that help you find the answer now?
• This table didn't make sense. You can look at it from left to right too. If you do so, the answer will be totally different.
• If you solve it as whole you will see there are 0 small paintings
• i still have problem in selecting the denominator....... can someone pls help me out?
• You don't actually have to solve for 20. If 5 is 1/4 then that means that 3/4 is 3 5s. Then add the 5s together and then add 15 and 4.
• If you solve the whole table you would find that the table equals to 25 instead of 24. Can someone please clarify.
• How exactly did you solve the whole table? I don't really see any way to get 25
• in confused. if 1/4 of her fav paintings are blue, and she has 24 fav paintings total, then wouldn't 6 paintings be blue? and wouldn't the answer then be 18?

• 1/4 of her favorite large paintings are blue. You might have missed that when reading the question.
• For those who are confused by the table:
20 large paintings + 4 small paintings = 24 total paintings.
Since there's already 4 small red paintings, there are 0 small blue paintings.
19 red-dominant paintings + 5 blue-dominant paintings = 24 total paintings.
