If x = 63% of y, then y2 is approximately what percent of x2 ?

A. 125%

B. 200%

C. 250%

D. 350%%

Answer: Option C

Solution(By Examveda Team)

x = 63% of y
⇒ x = $$\frac{63y}{100}$$
⇒ y = $$\frac{100x}{63}$$
∴ Required percentage :
$$\eqalign{ & = \left( {\frac{{{y^2}}}{{{x^2}}} \times 100} \right)\% \cr & = \left[ {{{\left( {\frac{{100x}}{{63}}} \right)}^2} \times \frac{1}{{{x^2}}} \times 100} \right]\% \cr & = \left( {\frac{{10000}}{{3969}} \times 100} \right)\% \cr & = 251.96\% \approx 250\% \cr} $$
