At Tyler High School, there are twice as many girls than boys on the yearbook staff. At one staff meeting, the percentage of girls attending was twice the percentage of boys. What percent of those attending were boys?

A) 20

B) 25

C) 30

D) 33

E) 50

We can let the number of girls = 20 and the number of boys = 10. We can let the percentage of girls attending = 100 and the percentage of boys = 50.

Thus, there were 20 girls and 5 boys, so the percentage of boys was 5/25 = 1/5 = 20%.

Answer: A
