  1. (15/100)n=1050

    n=(1050)(100/15)

    =7,000

  2. 15/100=1050/n <<<cross multiply

    15n=105000 <<< divide by 15

    n=7000 <<<answer

    Its a proportion

  3. whenever you see the word “of” in a question like this, multiply where the “of” is. 15% is the same as .15, so…

    .15Xn=1050

    ——– ——- divide both sides by .15

    .15 .15

    n= 7000
