Sample Slaughter and May Graduate Practice Aptitude Test Questions and answers
Slaughter & May Graduate Practice pack Numerical Reasoning
If the revenue for Car Rental in 2004 was half that for Hotels in 2005 when Holiday Lettings accounted for 5.04m Euros, what was the revenue from Hotels in 2004?
Let the revenue for car rental in 2004 be x
Let the hotel in 2005 be y
Holidays lettings = 5.04m
Therefore in 2015 = 40/100 x y = 5.04m
Y = 5.04/ 0.4 = 12.6m, where y in the total revenue in 2005
Therefore, the revenue for hotel y in 2005is given by 20/100 x 12.6 = 2.52m Euros
Since x for car rental in 2004 equal half hotels that is x = ½ x 2.52 = 1.26m Euros
The revenue of car rental in 2004 is 1.26m Euros.
If Other Revenue grew by 50% to 1.26m in 2005, approximately how much revenue did Holiday Lettings generate in 2004?
Other revenue increase by 50% to 1.26m in 2005
Initial amount for other revenue is 10%
For 50% increase = 0.5 x 0.1 x x + 0.1 x x = 1.26, where x is the total revenue in 2005
0.15x = 1.26, x = 8.4m Euros
Therefore 0.1 x 8.4 = 0.08 x y, where y is the total revenue in 2004
0.84 = 0.08y, y = 10.5m Euros
Since holiday and lettings in 2004 = 0.35 x 10.5 = 3.675 ~ 3.68m.
If starting from 2004, Hotel revenue grew by 20% year on year to 2.26m at at2007, approximately how much revenue did hotel revenue account for as at 2004?
16 Seconds year 2004 and hotel revenue = 20% of x,
where x is the revenue at 2004: 0.2 x x = 0.2x
Year 5 is 20% increase = 20% of 0.2x + 0.2x
0.2 x 0.2x + 0.2x = 0.24x
Year 2006 = 0.2 x 0.24x + 0.24x = 0.288x
Year 2007 = 0.2 x 0.288x + 0.288x = 2.26m
30.3456x = 2.26m,, x = 6.539m
Therefore the revenue for 2004 = 0.2 x 6.53m =1. 31m (1.26 is safe)
If Travel Revenue grew by 30% to 1m in 2005, approximately how much revenue did Holiday Lettings generate in 2004?
3rd in 2004, travel revenue = 0.35x, where x is the total revenue
In 2005 is 30% increase = 0.30 x 0.25x + 0.25x = 1m, 0.325x = 1
Total revenue for x = 3.077m in 2004
Therefore holiday lettings revenue = 0.35 x 3.077 = 1.05.

In the past 12 months benefit fraud has fallen by £½ billion to its lowest level for over a decade. The fall is equivalent to a 25 per cent drop to 1.5 percent of the total £100 billion benefit bill. This spectacular fall follows permission for the benefit office to access Inland Revenue taxation data. Benefit officers can now immediately check to see if a claimant is working and claiming benefits intended only for those out of work. This new measure has le d to over 80,000 people being caught making false claims. A similar initiative has also succeeded in a substantial cut in the level of fraud committed by claimants of housing benefit. Local authorities are responsible for the administration of this allowance which is awarded to the unemployed and low paid to help with housing costs. Until recently local authority staff had been unable to access central government records to check the information provided by claimants. These checks have so far identified 44,000 claimants who have provided false information in order to make claims for allowances for which they are not eligible.
By making it possible to share information, over 120,000 cases of fraud have been detected.
