Interesting Q, keep posting these GMATT
IMO it should be like this
short-stemmed-40
of these 20 white,15-pink, 5 red

Long-stemmed-80

From second part-15/p=5/r or r=3p, and p+r=80 then r=20, p=60
The required percentage is 15/80*100 or 18,75%
I must be wrong....it is not among the ans

u did a small mistake. r=3p and r+p=80, then r-60 and p-20.
you took the opposite.
thus req ans= 60/80=75%

short-stemmed=40
- 20 white
- 15 pink
- 5 red

long-stemmed=80
- p pink
- 80-p red

15/(p+15)=5/(85-p)
3(85-p)=p+15
255-15=4p
p=60

20/80

At the end of the day, February 14th, a florist had 120 roses left in his shop, all of which were red, white or pink in color and either long or short-stemmed. A third of the roses were short-stemmed, 20 of which were white and 15 of which were pink. The percentage of pink roses that were short-stemmed equaled the percentage of red roses that were short-stemmed. If none of the long-stemmed roses were white, what percentage of the long-stemmed roses were red?

(A) 20%
(B) 25%
(C) 50%
(D) 75%
(E) 80%

this is from the Manhattan GMAT email I get which attempts to solicit my business. I am posting because I believe I have solved it, but cannot find the answer on their website. Please post your answer and method!

Please see the video solution here...
