We're asked to find the percentage of toys in the store that are international brands. This question can be solved by TESTing VALUES. IF... TOTAL number of toys = 100, then... premium toys = 10% of 100 = 10, and 20% of the international toys are the ONLY premium toys... so 20% of X = 10 (1/5)(X) = 10 X = 50 Number of International toys = 50 Total number of toys = 100 50/100 = 50% Final Answer: D GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made, Rich _________________ Contact Rich at Rich.C@empowergmat.com ### GMAT/MBA Expert GMAT Instructor Joined 22 Aug 2016 Posted: 1979 messages Followed by: 30 members Upvotes: 470 swerve wrote: In a certain toy store, 20% of the international branded toys are the only premium category toys.

A. 10% B. 20% C. 40% D. 50% E. 60% The OA is D Source: e-GMAT We can let 100 be the total number of toys in the store. Therefore, the number of premium toys is 0.1 x 100 = 10. Since this is also 20% of the international branded toys, 10/0.2 = 50 are international branded toys. Therefore, 50/100 = 1/2 = 50% of the toys in the store are of international brands.
