I think the question is phrased simply enough... it's basically saying "400% of a number is 360...what's the number?" so you get 4x = 360 .. solve for x

No it can also mean that it was raised by 400 or maybe 360 we don't know. Seeing as the value of 400% percent is close to the number 360% making the assumption that 360 is the final number can be a mistake.
