x is at least 50% greater than 100, and at most 100 % greater than 100
In other words: (50% greater than 100) ≤ x ≤ (100% greater than 100)
Evaluate: 150 ≤ x ≤ 200

y is between 20% and 50% of x inclusive
In 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 = 30

IMPORTANT: 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 = 100

So, 30 ≤ y ≤ 100


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

Answer:

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