40 is 42% of what number? (set this up with a variable,simplify)

• math -

0.42x = 40

x = 40/0.42

x = 95.238

• math -

42 % = 42 / 100

40 = x * 42 / 100 Multiply both sides by 100

40 * 100 = 42 x

4000 = 42 x Divide both sides by 42

4000 / 42 = x

x = 95.238

OR

42 % = 42 / 100 = 0.42

x = 40 / 0.42 = 95.238
