(A) 3.00 (B) 5.00 (C) 5.50 (D) 6.50 (E) 6.75

Construct an equation: \(\frac{15}{100}=\frac{x}{45}\) --> \(x=6.57\).

Answer: E.

Bunuel, Isnt there a Type of 6.57, when it should be 6.75

Thank you!

If the concentration is \(15%,\) it means that for every 100 cubic centimeters of solution we have 15 grams of glucose, or for every 100/20 = 5 cubic centimeter we have 15/20 = 3/4 grams of glucose. Therefore, in \(45 = 9\cdot5\) cubic centimeters of solution, we have \(9\cdot\frac{3}{4}=\frac{27}{4}=6.75\) grams of glucose.
