    29) A painting which is 4 feet wide and 5 feet
    long is surrounded by a rectangular frame
    6-inches wide. What percent of the area of
    the picture and the frame is occupied by
    the frame?
    A. 10 1/2
    B. 20
    C. 30
    D. 33 1/3
    E. 50

    I am not able to get the answer because i think i my setup might be wrong.. can someone tell me if this visualization of mine is right??

  3. I think your visualization is correct. Just find the area of each section.
    Pic: 4x5=20, pic and frame: 5x6=30.
    frame=pic and frame - pic or 10=30-20
    so the total sq feet is 30 and the sq ft of the frame is 10, thus the frame is 1/3 of the total area of the picture and frame.

    Choice D is correct

    Ok i get it now, thanks a lot.. i was getting it wrong because i was doing 20/30 * 100 and did not realize that the question was asking the ratio of frame:total area instead i was doing the picture:total area. So instead i was getting 66 1/3 as the answer.. :)
