If m > 0 and x is m percent of y, then, in terms of m, y is what percent of x?

A. 100m

B. 1/100m

C. 1/m

D. 10/m

E. 10000/m

x is m percent of y --> y*\frac{m}{100}=x; y is what percent of x --> x*\frac{?}{100}=y --> ?=\frac{y}{x}*100 --> as from above \frac{y}{x}=\frac{100}{m} then ?=\frac{y}{x}*100=\frac{100}{m}*100=\frac{10,000}{m}.

Answer: E (for me) OA?? (Please! always provide Official Answer and if you don't know then mention that you don't know it) My explanation was same as Bunuel's, so not going to write the explanation. _________________

a) 100m b) 1/100m c) 1/m d) 10/m e) 10,000/m

Can someone solve this using a picking numbers strategy?

Let's imagine that m= 2 and y=100 x= 2% from 100 which makes 2. Now we need to find what percent is y from x. Y=100 and x=2. 100*100/2, since 2=m, the answer is 10,000/m.

here is my solution, can someone pl tell what wrong am I doing?

Y=20 x=2 m=10

now Y is (20*100)/2 = 1000% of x. that is, y is 1000% x and in the answer choices choice 1 I.e 100m is equal 1000 so I marked 1 as answer choice what is wrong with my approach? _________________

There is nothing wrong with your approach. Just that you have two options giving the same answer(A and E). Thus, the value of x,y and m have to be changed.A smarter value to use CAN be : assume that m=100%, that is x=y. Thus, our answer would also be 100% only. Plug-in the value of m=100% and you will see that only E matches. _________________

Answer: E.

You are Genius Bunuel.. I waas getting so confused in this , thankew so much...
