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%

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%
