The proportion that receives a C is 0.30. The proportion that receives a D is 0.10. The proportion that receives an F is 0.10.

Multiply each proportion by 200:

A = 200 * .20 = ?

B = 200 * .30 = ?

C = 200 * .30 = ?

D = 200 * .10 = ?

E = 200 * .10 = ?

I'll let you finish the calculations.

The last one should be F instead of E:

F = 200 * .10 = ?

Sorry for any confusion.
