1). Reqd difference
= (7.14 + 7.41) - (6.80 + 6.97)
= 14.55-13.77 = 0.78 tonnes

2). Total consumption of steel in June=6.8 million tonnes
Total consumption of steel over the given month = 6.98 + 6.84 + 7.31 + 5.75 + 7.56 + 6.8 + 6.29 + 6.97
= 54.5 million tones
Reqd % = (6.8/54.5) x100 = 12.48%

3). Reqd average
= (6.98 + 6.84 + 7.31+ 5.75 + 7.56 + 6.8 + 6.29 + 6.97)/8
=54.5/8 = 6.8125 million tones

4). Total consumption of steel over the given months = 6.98 + 6.84 + 7.31 + 5.75 +
7.56 + 6.8 + 6.29 + 6.97 = 54.5
Total production of steel over the given months = 6.63 + 7.14 + 7.26 + 7.06 + 7.41
+ 7.30 + 6.83 + 6.87 = 56.5
:. Reqd ratio = 54.5/56.5 = 109 : 113

5). Reqd average = (56.5 – 54.5)/8 million tones = 2/8 million tones= 250000 tonnes
