Kudos for correct solution.
Just solving for the numbers should take you to the answers easily here.
Monday: 20% of 180 ordered daily special.
Therefore 36 ordered daily special.
Tuesday: 10% of 120 ordered daily special
Therefore 12 people ordered daily special
Total daily special = 48
Total people on Monday and Tuesday = 180 + 120 = 300
Percentage of people who ordered daily special = (48/300)*100 = 16%
Option B
