Question 2
If eMarketing generated 100,000 leads in 2004 (an increase of 25% from 2003), how many leads 
were generated by Newspaper Advertising in 2003?

A. 48000
B. 52500
C. 54050
D. 56000
E. 65000
Correct answer: B
If eMarketing generated 100,000 leads in 2004 (an increase of 25% from 2003), how many leads 
were generated by Newspaper Advertising in 2003? 
Explanation
Leads generated by e-marketing in 2003 = (100% - 25%) x 100,000
= 75,000
Therefore leads generated by newspaper advertising in 2003
= (17.5%/25%) x 75,000 = 52,500
Alternatively
25% of x = 75,000
X = (75,000 x 100)/25
= 300,000
Since newspaper advertising for 2013 = 17.5%
=> 17.5/100 x 300,000 = 52,500

Question 3
If the number of leads generated by Direct Mail in 2004 was half that generated by eMarketing 
in 2003, when eMarketing accounted for 80,000 leads, how many did Telemarketing generate in 
2004?

A. 128000
B. 160000
C. 200000
D. 400000
E. 640000
Correct answer: B
If the number of leads generated by Direct Mail in 2004 was half that generated by eMarketing 
in 2003, when eMarketing accounted for 80,000 leads, how many did Telemarketing generate in 
2004? 
Explanation
Leads generated by e marketing in 2003 = 80,000
Therefore leads generated by direct mail in 2004 = 40,000

Percentage of leads generated by direct mail in 2004 = 10%
Let total mail generated in 2004 be x
Hence 10% of x = 40,000
X = 400,000
percentage generated by telemarketing = 40%
Therefore leads generated by telemarketing = 40% x 400,000 
= 160,000
Alternatively
leads generated by telemarketing 
leads generated by telemarketing = 40/10 x 40,000 = 
160,000(This method is shorter and 
saves time).

Question 4
If in 2004 the number of leads generated was 15% higher overall, and Radio Advertising 
generated 46,000, how many would Newspaper Advertising have generated?

A. 39000

0.15 x 46,000 = 69,000
