When expressing a math problem in words, the word "of" almost always means "multiply". Say that you know that 1199.91 is [equals] 23 percent of a number. The right side of the obvious equation is .23(a number), or .23x. 1199.91 equals .23x and all you have to do is divide both sides by .23 to find your answer. 1199.91/.23 is equal to 5217. If you have the part and the percent but you need to find the whole then this is the equation....for example 11 is 80% of_____? to figure it out you use this part over whole =percent over 100.... P =part, w=whole, and percent=x it looks like p x _ = _ w 100 The anser to my example one is W=13.75
