    if you wanna go old school, the equation looks like this

    30***60
    -- = --
    ?****100

    so, multiply 30 X 100 and divide that by 60

    3000 / 60 = 50

    and I FLUNKED math...

    30 = A x .6 ...

    30/.6 = A

    A = 50

    Yes, .6 is for 60%

    600% would be 6x
    6000% would be 60x

    30 is 60% of what number


    plug in the functions

    substitute "=" for "is"

    move the decimal two spaces to the left so 60. becomes .60

    "x" for "of"

    and "n" for what number


    therefore

    30 = .60X

    solve for X

    divide both sides by .60

    30 / .60 = 50

    theres more than one way to set this equation up..
