100 people and 99%, so 99 are managers.

 

I would say 50 managers.

 

This is because 49/50 = 98%.

 

I'm not sure though.

99/100   are managers (99%)

 

.98 x   =  .98 (100-x)

.98 x = 98 - .98x

1.96 x = 98

x = 50

 

If 50 leave the room then there will be  49 managers in the room of 50 people = 98%   (as rasberry found! )
