## Problem 15

Suppose $15\%$ of $x$ equals $20\%$ of $y.$ What percentage of $x$ is $y?$

$\textbf{(A) }5 \qquad \textbf{(B) }35 \qquad \textbf{(C) }75 \qquad \textbf{(D) }133 \frac13 \qquad \textbf{(E) }300$

## Solution 1

We set up the following equation based on the given information: $$\frac{15x}{100}=\frac{20y}{100}$$ Solving for $x$ yields $$\frac{3x}{20}=\frac{y}{5}$$ $$20y=15x$$ $$x=1.\overline{3}y ==> D$$
