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

Oops, Alex, I misread your problem. I'm sorry.
25% of what is 30

x = 30/0.25
x = 120
