Using the table given, we can create equations: A = 2.2X B = 0.5X C = 0.1X D = 4.0X E = 1.7X Now, plug these into the answer choices: A. 4 units of Country A currency --> 4(2.2X) = 8.8X B. 25 units of Country B currency --> 25(0.5X) = 12.5X C. 98 units of Country C currency --> 98(0.1X) = 9.8X D. 3 units of Country D currency --> 3(4.0X) = 12.0X E. 7 units of Country E currency --> 7(1.7X) = 11.9X The answer choice with the highest number of units of X (the highest coefficient) is B. _________________ Ceilidh Erickson Manhattan Prep GMAT & GRE instructor EdM in Mind, Brain, and Education Harvard Graduate School of Education Manhattan Prep instructors all have 99th+ percentile scores and expert teaching experience.
