If 32% of a number is 64, what is the number?
Percentages are used to represent a number as a portion of the whole. They are very useful when we need to compare two quantities in a mixture or when we need to have a specific amount of any component.
Answer: 32% of 200 is 64.
Let us have a look at the explanation to have a better picture.
Let the number to be found be y.
Therefore, according to the question, we have the following linear equation:
32/100 × y = 64
Therefore, y = (64 × 100)/32 = 200
Hence, y is 200 and 32% of 200 is 64.
