200 = x% of 40 = \(\frac{x}{100}\) * 40
x = \(\frac{200 * 100}{40}\) = 500%

I would apply a different approach to solve the problem.

We know that 100% of 40 is 40.
Therefore 200% of 40 is 40+40 = 80.
300% of 40 is 40+40+40 = 120.
400% of 40 is 40+40+40+40=160.
500% of 40 is 40+40+40+40+40=200.

Therefore 200 is 500% of 40. Hence E is the answer.

Any number greater than 40 will be MORE THAN 100% of 40.

Only one answer is greater than 100%: E

Let p = the percent
So, we get: 200 = p percent of 40
Rewrite as: 200 = (p/100)(40)
So, we get: 200 = (40p)/100
Simplify right side: 200 = (2p)/5
Multiply both sides by 5 to get: 1000 = 2p
Solve: p = 500

Answer: E

Cheers,
Brent
