You were given:
Find a number such that 32 is 60% of the number.
NOTE: Decimal answer rounded to nearest tenth.
Let x = number we want to find
The word [of] means to MULTIPLY in math.
The word [is] means EQUAL.
We now have this equation:
32 = 0.60(x)
Divide both sides by 0.60 to find x.
32/0.60 = x
53.3333333, etc = x
We round this decimal to the nearest tenths and we get
53.3 = x
Done!
