    Hi, do you know how to find a portion of a number? For example, 25% of is 200 is 50.

    To do this, you just do the inverse operation. I will try to guide you through this so you can understand how to do it.

    To start off with the basics, to find 25% of 200, you just multiply: 200 * 0.25 = 50.

    Ok. So in order to find this, you have to divide.

    Ok, so in order to solve, you have to do the same thing of finding the portion of 200, except you have to divide 0.16 and 0.2

    Read your problem, then write it like you read it. just remember, in " math language ", ---- " of " means multiply and " is " means equals. for example : 25% of what is 200 first change % to decimal.. 0.25 * x = 200 -- divide both sides by 0.25 x = 200/0.25 x = 800 or 16% of 200 is what number 0.16 * 200 = x 32 = x or you can just use the percent formula... is/of = %/100 and if you get this problem... 25% of what is 200 % = 25 of = x is = 200 now sub into the formula... 200/x = 25/100 this is a proportion, so you cross multiply 25x = 20000 x = 20000/25 x = 800
