    So, we need to basically do the opposite of simplifying, we need to make it so both fractions are equal. 35 x __ = 100?

    Mhm. So, keep the decimal (because its a pain to write out, i would use a calculator.) and times it by 20.

    Mhm :) and the closest answer is 55. which, makes sense because 20 is a little over half of 35. @Mahmood786123 would you agree?
