Try it yourself :) x over 21 equals 60 over 100.

Designate the unknown number by x. Then (60 %)x = 21, or 0.6x = 21, or x = 35
First time I cheated to give an answer. I hope this helped you

So Ive look at ^^^^ answers and they give out different numbers and im not good in math sooo

Report as

math formula for reference "is" - "=" What Number" - we will call "X"
There for
21 = 60/100 * X
to solve for X, divide both sides by 60/100 (which is also .6)
21/.6=X
35 = X

Proof
35 * .6 = 21

Once again....No sledgehammer needed here... divide 21 by the decimal equivalent percent (21/60), then multiply that answer by 100.

Old man's math for dummies....

Of course, you could also practice your algebra equations, which would help you prepare to solve more complex problems.

35. If 21 is 60 %, then ( divide by 6) 3.5 is 10%. If u want 100%, (x10) ur answer is 35. Hope this helps.:-)

35. solve by cross multiplying its 21 over x and 60 over 100 . you multiply 21*100 and divide by 60 totaling 35
