375. 150/.4 = 375. Just incase your wondering, the 40% got changed to a .4 because you can't divide 150/40%, so you just divide the 40% by 100, and get .4, THEN you divide and get 375. Percent needs a reference. Changing 40 percent to .4 is the same as choosing the reference of 1. If you reword the question, "what is 150 divided by 40 percent of 150" The reference is now 150, 40 percent of 150 is 60. 150 divided by 60 is 2.5
