E. 100y/x


#of marbles(white+non-white)=x
Or, y+non-white=x
Or, #non-white=x-y

Percent of Don`s marbles that are NOT white=\(\frac{#non-white}{#Total-marbles}=\frac{x-y}{x}*100\)=\(\frac{100(x−y)}{x}\)

Ans. (B)

Total Marble: x

White Marble = y

Non-White Marble = x - y .

\(\frac{(x - y)*100}{x}\)

The best answer is B.

Non white marbles = \(x - y\)

So, Percentage on non white marbles = \(\frac{( x - y )}{x}100\), Answer must be (B)

E. 100y/x


Since Don has x total and y white marbles, he has (x - y) non-white marbles, so the percent of marbles that are not white is (x - y)/x *100 = 100(x - y)/x.

Answer: B
