Let the Total distance travelled by Car and Train = 100

Distance Travelled by Car = Y % of 100 = Y
Distance Travelled by Train = (100 - Y) % of 100 = (100 - Y)

Cost incurred with Car Travel = 12 * Y = 12Y
Cost incurred with Train Travel = 8 * (100 - Y) = 800 - 8Y
Total Cost = 12Y + 800 - 8Y = 800 + 4Y = 4 (200 + Y)

Given : Total amount spent on car travel was X% of the total amount spent on the whole journey

\(\frac{12Y * 100}{4 (200 + Y)}\) = X

\(\frac{3Y * 100}{(200 + Y)}\) = X

300Y = 200X + YX

300Y - YX = 200X

Y (300 - X) = 200X

Y = \(\frac{200X}{300 - X}\)

Answer is B
