Hi Paul,

But we don't know the initial numbers of x and y. Does this matter?

We don't need to know the numbers if we know that one is greater than the other on a relative basis

C it is...

if .2X=.3Y

Well, its solved already, but thought I'd chip in with my view.

There's an intersection set of X and Y, that has the same number of members. (obviously!).

For that intersection set, they say, is 20% of X and 30% of Y.
This easily gives us relative sizes of X and Y.

Like if 20 is 20% of X and 30% of Y, we know Y is smaller than X.

Hope that helps.
