Let’s draw the table for better understanding.
$$\begin{array}{|l|ccc|} \hline & \textbf{Black} & \textbf{White} & \\\hline \text{Metallic} & x & x & \\ \text{Non-metallic} & x & 1.5x & \\ \text{Total} & 2x & 2.5x & 450 \\\hline \end{array}$$
Now, $2x+2.5x = 450$
$\Rightarrow 4.5x = 450$
$\Rightarrow \boxed{x = 100}$
$\therefore$ The number of non-metallic balls $\text{(Black+White)}= x+1.5x = 2.5x = 2.5 \times 100 = 250.$
Correct Answer : $250$
