**Chip**, Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 5:34pmOh my gosh, I'm dying of laughter. Jessie, why don't you stop being a little snot and pay attention in class.

26/143 = x/100

You cross-multiply

26*100=143*x

2600=143*x

Then you find x, as Ms.Sue tried so nicely to explain to you, by dividing 2600 by 143 (2600/143) which gives you the answer you're too lazy to even google. Ta-dah!
