b is 150%of a .c is 250% larger than b. d is 200% greater than c.If a equals 12,& what is d? Please help me solve this

Start piece by piece.

Find b first, then c and then d.

B is 18. How to find c?

c is 250% larger than b. What does that mean?

B is something and we add 250% to that

That kind of response sounds like a shaky foundation. I recommend watching the percentage-based videos on PrepSwift, particularly the â€śPercent of versus Percent Moreâ€ť one.

It is important that you can distinguish between the two, and is what this question is testing.

Cool thanks , can I know how it has to be solved

b is 150% of a â†’ b = 1.5a

c is 250% larger than b â†’ c = 3.5b

d is 200% greater than c â†’ d = 3c

You have a. Use that to find, in order, b, c and d.
