If xy ≠ 0 and 20 percent of x equals \(33 \frac{1}{3}\) percent of y, what is the value of \(15(\frac{x}{y})\)?

(A) 15/8
(B) 3
(C) 5
(D) 9
(E) 25


20% of x= 100/3 % of y
20/100 of x = (100/3)/100 of y
(1/5)x=(100/300)y
(1/5)x=(1/3)y
x/y=5/3
(x/y)*15=(5/3)*15
(x/y)*15=25
so the correct answer will be option E.

(2/10)x = (1/3)y
x/y = (1/3)*(10/2)
x/y = 10/6
x/y = 5/3

15(x/y) = 15(5/3) = 25

Correct answer is E.
