    13%

    We start with 100%. Subtract 75% for the roses, and we are left with 25% of the flowers that are tulips.

    Of that 25%, 50% are pink. 50% = half. So the question is, what is 1/2 of 25%?

    Half of 25 is 12.5. Of your answer choices, 13% is closest.

    Answer:

    13%

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Percentage of tulips=100%-75%

    =25%

    Percentage of pink tulips=50%×25%

    =12.5%

    Hence, the option with 13% is closest to 12.5% when it is rounded off to the nearest ten.

    Thus, the answer is 13%.

    hope it helps!!!
