price of 40 brand x sets = 40x
price of 80 brand y sets = 80y = 80*2x = 160x
total bill price = 40x+160x = 200x
price of 1 brand y set = 2x
percentage = (2x/200x)*100 = 1.0%
E is the answer.
X be the price of brand X. Y be the price of brand Y.
40X is the price of brand X television.
80Y is the price of brand Y television.
Y = 2X
So 160X is the price of brand Y television.
Total price = 200X
So price of one band Y set = 2X/200X =1%
