Hi Kristin; 40x=26 x=26/40 Multiply numerator (top) and denominator (bottom) by 2.5... x=[(26)(2.5)]/[(40)(2.5)] x=65/100 x=65% 3/13/2014 | Vivian L. Comment
26/40 = x/100 set up as a ratio and proportion type equation. 26 is to 40 as x is to 100. why 100? because 100 is the basis for percent. solve the equation for x and we get 65. so 65/100 = .65 or 65% 3/14/2014 | Randy B. Comment
