Best Answer

12 is .75x is one way to write this using symbols.

Now we go one more step

and write

12=.75x

In this case it may be easier to see

.75 is 3/4 and write

12=(3/4)x.

Then we find x by multiplying

12 by 4/3 which is

16.

Does this make sense?

If 12 is 3/4 of 16, then

we should have 16x3/4=12 but

16/4=4 and 3x4=12 as desired.

Let the number be x.

7.5% of x is 12

7.5% * x = 12

0.075 * x = 12

x = 12 / 0.075

x = 160

75% AKA 3/4

1/4 of 12 is 3

3/4 of 12 is 3 *3

therefore

75% of 12 is 9
