Would someone please be kind enough to explain steps for this one. Thank you.


If m and n are positive integers and m is 250% of n, what percent of m is 2n?

  • Math Help Please -

    m = 2.5n
    2m = 5n
    n = (2/5)m
    2n = (4/5)m
    4/5 = .8 = 80%

    e.g.

    let n = 10, then m = 25

    then 2n = 20
    percentage of 25 is 20 --> 20/25 = .8 = 80%
