A certain game requires players to collect both blue tokens, which are worth b points each, and red tokens, which are worth r points each. If p percent of player A's points are from blue tokens and q percent of player A's token are red, which of the following is an expression for the value of p, in terms of b, r, and q?

A) $$\frac{100bq}{(bq + 100r - qr)}$$

B) $$\frac{(10,000b - 100bq)}{(100b - bq + qr )}$$

C) $$\frac{(bq + 100r - qr)}{100 bq}$$

D) $$\frac{(100b - bq)}{(100r - 100bq - qr)}$$

E) $$\frac{(100b - bq + qr)}{(10,000b - 100bq)}$$

If p percent of player A's points are from blue tokens and q percent of player A's token are red, which of the following is an expression for the value of p, in terms of b, r, and q?

A) $$\frac{100bq}{(bq + 100r - qr)}$$

B) $$\frac{(10,000b - 100bq)}{(100b - bq + qr )}$$

C) $$\frac{(bq + 100r - qr)}{100 bq}$$

D) $$\frac{(100b - bq)}{(100r - 100bq - qr)}$$

E) $$\frac{(100b - bq + qr)}{(10,000b - 100bq)}$$

Let the total number be 100, as this is a percentage question..

Now p+q=100 or p=100-q..
Value of blue = pb, and value of red = qr
Percentage of value of b = $$100*\frac{pb}{pb+qr}$$
Substitute p =100-q, so Percentage of value of b =p= $$100*\frac{(100-q)b}{(100-q)b+qr}$$= $$\frac{(10,000b - 100bq)}{(100b - bq + qr )}$$

Hi chetan2u,
Can you elaborate how the value of blue is pb and value of red is qr.

Hi chetan2u,

Hi..
I have taken the total to be 100.. so p percent of 100 is (p/100)*100=p.
Thus we have p blue tokens and each blue tokens worth B points. Total = number of tokens *points per token = p*b

Similarly for other
