how , Family A earns 60,000 and pays 30% - 34.9% (9% pay that much) for housing cost and Family B pays 20% - 24.9% ,how they are saying a A pays 30-40?


The 2nd graph (U.S. Housing cost as a percent of income: Renter) shows that there are total of 37.5M. Family A lies in the category where there are 3.5M renters.
Thus, 9% of 37.5M is near to 3.5M.
Hence, the family A lies in 30% - 34.9%.
Hope it is clear now.

This is a trick question, as you can see the range between A and B lies between 18,000 - 20,940 and 17,000 - 21,165. Family B can pay 17,000 right up to 21,165, which includes 18,000 as well.
If family B pays 18,000, and family A also pays the same amount, then the difference will be 0. Hence option F is also possible.

How do you find the differences and then how do you deduce the range from there? I don't understand.

Family A:
18000 to 20940

Family B:
17000 to 21165

Hi there!

I hope you were able to find the range in which the two family lies.

Family A- Lies in the range of 18000-20940
Family B lies in the range of 17000-20825

Now, the highest difference could be 20940-17000=3940

The lowest difference being 0, why? Because it is possible that Family B could be 18000 or 18100 or 19999 or anything in the range between 18000-20940
Similarly, B can also be in this range. Thus the two values can be equal and the difference can be 0 as well

Thus, values between 0-3940 are the correct answers.

IMO D, E, F.

Ask for further assistance.

Hope this helps!
