 Question 109068: hi! I am solving for base and rounding to the nearest hundreth as needed. I know that base= portion/rate however I can not figure these two problems out. 1. 36 is .75% of 2. 10,800 is 90% of thanks!Answer by stanbon(60778)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!1. 36 is .75% of Comment: That % sign means "over 100". ---------------------------- EQUATION: 36 = (0.75/100)x Multiply both sides by 100 to get: 3600 = 0.75x Divide both sides by 0.75 to get: x = 4800 --------------------------------------- 2. 10,800 is 90% of 10,800 = (90/100) x Multiply both sides by 100 to get: 1080000 = 90x Divide both sides by 90 to get: x = 12000 =============== Cheers, Stan H.
