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 $$p = \frac{100m}{n}$$

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 $$X = \frac{10000}{n}$$
