If x and y are positive integers, what percent of three more than y is twice the value of x?

A 1/200x(y + 3)

B y + 3/200x

C 100(y + 3)/2x

D (200x/y) + 3

E 200x/(y + 3)

Rewrite: twice the value of x is what percent of three more than y?

Twice the value of x \(= 2x\)

Three more than y = \(y + 3\)

\(\frac{part}{whole} * 100 =\) percent

\(\frac{2x}{(y + 3)} * 100 =\) percent

percent = \(\frac{200x}{(y + 3)}\)

Answer E
