These are my steps but I don't think I did it the right way.
1,300,000
^
18.6% of ?
18.6/100 = 1,300,000/x
18.6x = 1,300,000 x 100
18.6x = 1,300,000
x = 1,300,000/ 18.6
I guess this is the part were I get stuck....

It's easier to just say 18.6% = 0.186 and so 18.6% of 1,300,000 is simply:
0.186*1,300,000 = 241,800
or, doing it the way you were doing above:
100% = 1,300,0000
18.6% = x
x = (1,300,000*18.6%)/100%
which gives the same answer.
Hope that helps.
