Very easy I guess it is below 500 difficulty question
675=6/100*x
675*100/6=x
225*50=x
A is the option

E. 40.5


Test some values.

6% of 100 is 6
6% of 1,000 is 60
6% of 10,000 is 600
ALMOST THERE!!!
So, 6% of a number a little bigger than 10,000 is 675

A

675 = 6*1/100*X

67,500 = 6*X

11,250 = X

No need to calculate

675 Must be less than actual number. So actual number can't be D & E

Choice C is almost near to 675 . Eliminate C

10% of choice is 675. so 6% must be less than 675.

Once choice left

Answer: A
