To find the least number of states in which company A sold cement, we have to assume that company A had its sales in states in which the total sales were the maximum. Even if we assume company A had 50% market share in the states with maximum sales, there must be at least 5 states where company A sold cement.

(2016) Q. If in all the states in which company E was present, it had a market share of at least 25%, in at most how many states did company E sell cement?

Solution:
