If you multiply a number by 0.8, the result is 20% less than the original number.

Since the number will lose 20% of its value, 80% of it will remain. 80% = 0.8 Multiply the number by 0.8 . The result is what remains after the number shrinks by 20%.

The final result is 10.4% more than the original number.

20 / 0.2 = 100. Therefore, the number that 20 is 20 percent of, is 100.

The number is 7. 7 x 0.8 = 5.6. 5.6 +14.4 = 20.
