a) there are 9 numbers less than ten and 50 numbers in blue so that is a total of 59 numbers put 59/100 (because there are 100 numbers total) and then x/100( out of 100%) cross multiply and you get 5900 = 100 x divide by 100 and you 59 %

b) same thing really but figure out how many numbers are multiple of 20
