If n is positive and m is n percent of p, then, in terms of n, p is what percent of m?

A) 100n

Hi,

Can you plz check the answer again, one of the option should be\(\frac{10,000}{n}\)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

m is n percent of p

i.e.\(m = \frac{n}{100} * p\)

or \(p = \frac{100m}{n}\)

Now question ask

p = what % of m (let it be x)

so we can re-write as p = x% of m (we need to find X)

or\(X = \frac{p}{m} *100\)

or \(X = \frac{100m}{m*n} *100\)

or \(X = \frac{10000}{n}\)
