    Convert the 12% to its decimal equivalent of 0.12 and use this equation: 0.12 * n = 60 Divide both sides by 0.12: n = 60 / 0.12 = 500 ANSWER: 500

    Here's and easier way to understand: Let x = The number we are looking for. 12% of x = 60. 0.12x = 60 x = 60/0.12 x = 500 @dmezzullo @brooklyn16
