E. 6250


a=0.6b
b=0.4c
c=0.2d
a=0.6*.4*.2d
a=.048d

6d=x*20*a
6d=.01x*20 * 0.048d
.01x= 6.25
x=625
IMO D

a=.6b, b=.4c, c=.2d
thus a =.6*.4*.2 d
a= 0.048d
20a = .96d
now 6d = x* 20a
x = 6/(.96)
x = 625
hence answer D

A. 0.625
B. 6.25
C. 62.5
D. 625
E. 6250



d = 100

c = 20

b = 8

a = 4.8


(6d / 20a)*100

(600 / 4.8 * 20 )*100

(600 / 96 )*100

600 / 96 = 6.25

6.25 * 100 = 625.

D is the correct answer.

We can create the equations:

a = 0.6b

And

b = 0.4c

and

c = 0.2d

Therefore, we have b = 0.4(0.2d) = 0.08d, and hence a = 0.6(0.08d) = 0.048d.

So 20a = 20(0.048d) = 0.96d, and 6d is:

6d/(0.96d) x 100 = 6/0.96 x 100 = 600/96 x 100 = 625 percent of 20a

Answer: D

Let, \(d = 1000\)

So, \(c = 200\) ; \(b = 80\) & \(a = 48\)

Thus, \(6d = 6000\) & \(20a = 960\)

Then, \(6d\) is what percent of \(20a\) = \(\frac{6000}{960}*100 = 625\) Answer must be (D)
