3. You were given:

Find a number such that 32 is 60% of the number.

NOTE: Decimal answer rounded to nearest tenth.

Let x = number we want to find

The word [of] means to MULTIPLY in math.

The word [is] means EQUAL.

We now have this equation:

32 = 0.60(x)

Divide both sides by 0.60 to find x.

32/0.60 = x

53.3333333, etc = x

We round this decimal to the nearest tenths and we get

53.3 = x

Done!
