    What this question is asking is...

    66 \frac{2}{3}% = 66.67% =.6667 = 2/3

    \Rightarrow x \times 2/3 = 150. Solve for x. Then,

    \Rightarrow x = \frac{150}{2/3} = 225.

    Similarly,

    33 \frac{1}{3}% = 33.33% =.3333 = 1/3

    \Rightarrow x \times 1/3 = 31.5. Solve for x. Then,

    \Rightarrow x = \frac{31.5}{1/3} = 94.5.

    \frac{150}{2/3} = 150 \times \frac{3}{2} = \frac{450}{2}= 225
