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.
