*20. Mary has 40% fewer marbles than Jolie. If they combine all their marbles in a single bag, what percent of the marbles in the bag are Jolie's?*

Say Jolie has 100 marbles. That means Mary has 60 marbles.

The total in the bag is 160 marbles, and 60 of them are Mary's.

60/160 = 0**.**375 so **37.5%** are Mary's
