    first off u make a formula

    i think its 62.5/100 = 15/x

    solve for x, 1000*15/62.5 and x = 24.

    first i say sumthing, than i submit it so it makes me on top, than i finish the work.

    Well, if 62.5% = 15

    Divide 15 by 62.5 to find the value of 1%

    Then multiply by 100 to find the value of 100%, and that's your answer

    Of= times

    Is= equals (=)

    what # (x)

    So pretty much it's:

    .625 (times) X = 15

    Then you divide .625 by 15 and get :

    .04

    as your answer

    I hope I made that clear enough, I'm not a tutor or anything so sorry if I didn't.
