Calculus

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?
(a) 3/250
(b) 3/25
(c) 1
(d) 6/5
(e) 4/3
When I work this problem I keep getting 6/25, but that is not one of the choices. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. m = .30q
    q = .20p
    n = .25p

    Substitute the equation for q into the equation for m...

    m = .30(.20p)
    m = .06p

    m/n
    .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.

  2. 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.
