(1) 10x - 15y = 0

(2) 4x^2 = 9y^2


Given: x and y are both positive. Let p be percent of x=y, p/100*x=y. p=y*100/x, we have to find p.

1) 10x-15y=0, 10x=15y, y=(2/3)*x, y/x=2/3, y/x*100=(2/3)*100=66.66%. Sufficient.

2) 4x^2=9y^2, 2x=+/- 3y, since x and y are both positive, 2x=3y, y/x=2/3, p=2/3*(100)= 66.66%. Sufficient.

IMO, Option D.
