**PsyDAG**, Thursday, December 6, 2007 at 7:54pmX = whole set.

3/4 X = 12

Multiply both sides by 4 and divide both sides by 3.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

**Damon**, Thursday, December 6, 2007 at 9:23pmIf 3/4 of the set is 12

then 1/4 of the set is 4 (which is 12/3)

then the whole set is four of those quarters,

which is 4 times 4

or 16
