Accepted Solution

A:

What you must keep in mind is that there are 4 jeans in total, which represents 100%

When she bought two jeans, we have the following information:

If both of them are blue:

50% of their jeans is blue now, that is:

x = (50/100) * 4 = 2

2 jeans are blue.

This means that she did NOT have 2 blue jeans before.

Thus:

If they are not blue:

We have 4 jeans that are not blue.

Then, 0% of her jeans is blue now
