A) # of paper check transactions in 2006: 24
# of paper check transactions in 2009: 30
% increase = (6/24) * 100 = 25%, so paper check is the correct answer.

B)Let's say the value of credit card transactions in 2006: 100 # credit card transactions = 22 Avg value = 100/22 = 4.55 If value goes up 10%, then value of credit card transactions in 2009: 110 # transactions = 20 Avg value = 110/20 = 5.5 % increase = (.95/4.55)*100 = 20.9%. Round up to 21%. Veritas Prep | GMAT Instructor Veritas Prep Reviews Save$100 off any live Veritas Prep GMAT Course

Also, a friendly reminder that, while you could always estimate, the on-screen calculator can be useful in questions like this. (It's very easy to forget that the calculator is an option in IR.)
