    66 remains 66 because it is not 66%. If it was a percentage, then you will use the decimal.

    The question asks: 75% of what number is 66? is/of = %/100 66/x = 75/100 66/x = 3/4 3*x = 66*4 3x = 264 x = 264/3 x = 88 Therefore, 75% of 88 is 66 Pippa, this truly is the proper solution given what is asked of the original question. Proportion is an equation with the form: a/b = c/d

    ok well 24n=96% and 96/n=24 so 96/24=4and244=96% so the answer is 6% of 96%

    24 = .96n Our goal is to get "n" alone. To do so, we have to divide .96 from both sides When we do so, we get: 24/.96 = .96n/.96 .96n / .96 gives us simply "n" 24/.96 give us?
