Only Y=1.5 of Only W; Only W=Only Y/1.5

100%=Only Y+Only W+Both
100%=(Only Y+Both)+Only W
100%=Yellow+Only Y/1.5; 20%=Only Y/1.5;Y=30% IMO B

We can let the total number of rose bushes = 100. Therefore, 80 bushes have yellow roses, and 20 bushes have white roses only. We can let n = the number of bushes that have roses of both colors. Therefore, we can create the equation:

80 - n = 1.5(20)

80 - n = 30

50 = n

So 80 - 50 = 30 bushes, or 30 percent of all bushes, have yellow roses only.
