Since he put 50 blue which form 25% then the total number of flags is 200 flag so the yellow have 39% of the flags which are 78 yellow flag

Answer:96

Step-by-step explanation50 counters= 25% (blue)

150= 75% (red and yellow)

red= 36%

36/100= 0.36

150×0.36= 54 red

150-54= 96 yellow

I hope this helps 🙂
