If M is 30% of Q, Q is 20% of P, and N is 25% of P, then M/N equals
which of the following?
When I work this problem I keep getting 6/25, but that is not one of the choices. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
m = .30q
q = .20p
n = .25p
Substitute the equation for q into the equation for m...
m = .30(.20p)
m = .06p
.06p / .25p
The p's cancel, so your answer is...
.06 / .25 = 6/25
Yea, I don't know. I believe the question creator may have left out the 2 in 25 on choice d.
This exact same question was asked either yesterday or the day before, and I also got 6/25 as the answer, and posted it that way.
