  1. Madhusudan says:

    1. No of McDonalds in US/world = 1000
    No of sales per hr = 5
    No of hrs open = 20?
    -> Total num of burgers sold in US = 1000*5*20 = 100000/day
    exact answer doesn matter …this is actually simple
    2.Business ties? u mean Mergers/Acquisitions? Ok …
    No of business in a country = 100
    Number of Business which may look for Mergers/Acq = 20%
    Number of Business ties actually happening = I think its around 10%

    => 100*20%*10% = 2 acquisitions/Mergers per yr in a country

  2. Sujoy Ghosh says:

    Can anyone help in the approach :-
    1. How many burgers are sold in McDonald in a day ?
    2. How many business ties are sold in a year in any country ?

    How should we go for it ? What is the strategy ?

    Regards
    Joy
