3 = 60% of 5

8 = 100% + 60% = 160%

What percent of 5 is 8

Translate word to equation 5(x/100)=8

x=(8/5)*100

x=160

Hence E

Using MGMAT strategy, the question can be translated into (x/100)*5=8. Hence, x=160.

We can let x be the percent of 5 that is 8; thus:

(x/100) * 5 = 8

x/100 = 8/5

5x = 800

x = 160

Answer: E
