A. 50
B. 100
C. 200
D. 1000
E. 2000

\sqrt{C - OG12}

I already solved it. Posting this for others who needs practice.

Given: $$x>0$$ and $$y>0$$.
"Positive integer y is 50 percent of 50 percent of positive integer x" --> $$y=0.5*(0.5x)=0.25x$$
"y percent of x equals 100" --> $$\frac{y}{100}*x=100$$ --> $$xy=100*100$$ --> substitute $$y$$ --> $$x^2=4*100*100$$ --> as $$x>0$$, only one solution $$x=200$$.
