I'll make a table first which include all the data :

Year No. of students employed No. of finance students employed No. of marketing students employed
$1992$ $800$ $22\% \times 800 = 176$ $36\% \times 800 = 288$
$1993$ $650$ $17\% \times 650 = 110.5$ $48\% \times 650 = 312$
$1994$ $1100$ $23\% \times 1100 = 253$ $43\% \times 1100 = 473$
$1995$ $1200$ $19\% \times 1200 = 228$ $37\% \times 1200 = 444$
$1996$ $1000$ $32\% \times 1000 = 320$ $32\% \times 1000 = 320$

 

∴ Total No. of finance students employed in $5$ years = $(176 + 110.5 + 253 + 228 + 320) = 1087.5$

Total No. of marketing students employed in $5$ years = $(288 + 312 + 473 + 444 + 320) = 1837$

∴ The number of students who got jobs in finance is less than the number of students getting marketing jobs, in five years, by $(1837 - 1087.5) = 749.5 \approx 750$
