Question description

Javier works in a photo lab and needs to make a reduced copy of a photograph that is 8 inches long. The customer wants the copy to have a length of 4.5 inches. Each time he presses the reduce button on the copier, the copy is reduced by 12%. Javier and his boss had an argument, because Javier claimed that pressing the button 5 times would be enough to fulfill the customer's request. His boss said that pressing the button 5 times would result in a length less than the desired 4.5 inches. Which of the following conclusions can be made?

The answer choices are ...

A. Javier is correct and should press the button 5 times

B. Javier's boss is correct and he should press the button 5 times

C. Javier is correct and should not press the button 5 times

D. Javier's boss is correct and he should not press the button 5 times
