x is at least 50% greater than 100, and at most 100 % greater than 100; y is between 20 % and 50% of x inclusive. Which of the following are possible values for y?

❑ 10

❑ 25

❑ 40

❑ 60

❑ 90

❑ 100

❑ 120

❑ 170

❑ 200

x is at least 50% greater than 100, and at most 100 % greater than 100In other words: (50% greater than 100) ≤ x ≤ (100% greater than 100)

Evaluate: 150 ≤ x ≤ 200

y is between 20% and 50% of x inclusiveIn other words: (

20% of x) ≤ y ≤ (

50% of x)

IMPORTANT: The smallest value of y will be when x is the smallest.

Since 150 is the smallest possible value of x, the smallest possible value of y =

20% of 150 =

30IMPORTANT: The biggest value of y will be when x is the biggest.

Since 200 is the biggest possible value of x, the biggest possible value of y =

50% of 200 =

100So,

30 ≤ y ≤

100Which of the following are possible values for y?30 ≤ y ≤

100Answer:

40, 60, 90, 100 (C, D, E, F)

Cheers,
