Your first problem is a percentage problem. 25% = 0.25

0.25 * 30 = 7.5

your doing "is over of equals percnt over 100. so you set it up

30/x =25/100

cross multiply and solve for x

25x= 3000

dicide by 25 for your answer.

this is stuff you learn in algebra. i am confused with the second equation though

But the answer is 120. I have the answers to those questions. I just need to know topics they are included in so I can study.

Oops, Alex, I misread your problem. I'm sorry.

25% of what is 30

0.25x = 30

x = 30/0.25

x = 120
