Answer:

#25# chess sets

Explanation:

You are actually trying to find #25% " of " 50% " of " 200#

#50%# of the #200# games are board games and #25%# of those are chess.

#50/100 xx 200 = 100# board games

#25/100 xx 100 = 25# chess .

Or in one calculation:

#cancel50/cancel100_cancel2 xx25/cancel100 xxcancel200^cancel2 =25#

#=25# chess sets
