3. If a salesman's average is a new order every other week, he will break the office record of the year. However, after 28 weeks, he is six orders behindschedule. In what proportion of the remaining weeks does he have to obtain a new order to break the record?
Number of weeks in a year = 52
Total orders in a year = 52/2 = 26
So after 28 weeks no. of orders = 28/2 = 14
Originally completed orders in 28 weeks = 14 - 6 = 8 orders (Because 6 orders behind)
next 24 (52- 28) weeks, orders needed to collect = 26 - 8 = 18
So, required proportion for remaining weeks = 18/24 = 3/4
