Easiest way is to relate words to math terms

**is** means **=** (equals)

**of** means ***** (times, or multiply)

rewrite into equation:

384 **is **64% **of (**What number)?

384 = 64% * (**X)**

**then solve for X.... The unknown **

**if you can get this, then you can solve for any unknown... Simply changing words to math terms with same meaning **
