Assume x='abc'= 100a+b+c

x when rounded to nearest hundred > x when rounded to nearest ten

x when rounded to nearest hundred= 100(a+1)

There are 2 possible cases

1. c<5

100(a+1)=5/3(100a+10b)
4a+b=6

when a=0, b=6.......(1)
60,61,62,63,64

when a=1, b=2........(2)
120, 121,122,123,124

2. c≥5
100(a+1)=5/3[100a+10(b+1)]

4a+b=5

if a=0, b=5.......(2)
55,56,57,58,59

if a=1, b=1.......(4)
115,116,117,118,119


We can solve it using options too

Solving via options:

A. 64
Rounded off to nearest hundreds = 100
Rounded off to nearest tens = 60
% increase = \(40/60*100 = 200/3 = 66 \frac{2}{3}\) —> YES

IMO Option A
