x + 0•74 x = 80

1•74 x = 80

x = 80/1•74

x = 46_________to nearest whole number.

1.74x = 80

x + (74 % * x) = 80

x.(1 + 74 %) = 80

x.(1 + 0.74) = 80

x * 1.74 = 80

x = 80/1.74

x ≈ 46

x(174/100) = 80

1.74x = 80

x = 45.977

80/1.74 = 45.977 ...

or you could just write

8000/174 = 4000/87

46

You would have made the unknown 174% of its original value.

Divide the target (80) by 1.74 and you get the unknown.

80 / 1.74 = 45.977; nearest integer = 46
