Accepted Solution

A:

The equation I'm going to use is the equation you would use with the original number to find 150% pecent of it.

1.5x=12

Now, let's divide both sides by 1.5.

12Γ·1.5=8

Let's check our answer.

We can split 150% in 2 segments, the 100% and the 50%.

8+4=12

Adding 100% of 8 and 50% of 8.

12 is 150% of 8.

1.5x=12

Now, let's divide both sides by 1.5.

12Γ·1.5=8

Let's check our answer.

We can split 150% in 2 segments, the 100% and the 50%.

8+4=12

Adding 100% of 8 and 50% of 8.

12 is 150% of 8.
