    300% of 60% x equals 60% y. Find ratio between x and y.

    Ty Ty for the help on my previous (lake on a map) question!

    I have one more, i will try to give solution immediately.

    300% of 60% x is equal to 60% y. What is the ratio between x and y. ( % )

    60%x or 0.6x

    300% is 3x so 3*0.6x=1.8x

    1.8x=60%y/:1.8
    x=33.33%y or y=66.66%x

    TY!

    1.8x=60%y/:1.8.....................Correct upto here

    1.8 * x = 0.6 * y

    x = 1/3 * y

    y = 3 * x


    x=33.33%y or y=66.66%x

    TY!
