#10 is wrong. The answer is $2160, not $560. (4,800/20 x 9)

 

I win.

 

Are they allowed pencil & paper for this test?

 

Re-read the question. It asks how much less does the guy receive. You're right, that if profits were prorated based on investment, he would have received 2160. But as it stands, he received 1600 (4800/3). So he made 560 (2160-1600) less than he would have had the profits been prorated based on investment.

So how did you guys get the 'right' answer for #10? :rolleyes:

 

"how much less does X receive than if the profits were divided in proportion to the amount invested?"

 

I looked at the profit being divided equally. Then looked at what the profit would've been proportinately... then got the difference of both profit figures. :flex:

 

Victory is mine.

Ahh I fail! Call me Mario.

 

This is why I never take a Wonderlic before morning coffee.
