Plug in $200 for Susan's deposit and 10% for $$p$$. Based on this, interest earned by Susan is $20 (10% of 200 = 20).
Since Jane's deposit is half of Susan's, Jane deposited $100 and needs to earn $20 in interest.
>$$\text{Jane's rate} = \frac{20}{100} \times 100 = 20\%$$
That's your goal. Plug in $$p=10$$ into the answer choices, and __POE__ anything that does not match your goal. Since all of the other answer choices do not match 20 for $$p=10$$, this is the correct answer.

$$2p \%$$

$$p \%$$

$$ \frac{2p}{3} \%$$

$$ \frac{p}{2} \%$$

$$ \frac{p}{3} \%$$
