1
z = (200/100)*W , W being Wanda's number.
So, z = 2W or W = z/2
20% of W = (20/100)*(z/2) = z/10

Option D

Solution


Given:
    • Peter’s number, z = 200% of Wanda’s number

To find:
    • 20% of Wanda’s number, in terms of z

Approach and Working:
    • z = (200/100) * Wanda’s number
      o Implies, Wanda’s number = \(\frac{z}{2}\)

    • 20% of \(\frac{z}{2} = (\frac{20}{100}) * (\frac{z}{2}) = \frac{z}{10}\)

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

Answer: D
