We're starting with: 150% of x = 54

"150%" means: 150 per cent = 150 per 100 = 150/100 = 15/10 = 1.5

"of" means: multiply.

So, now we have: 1.5 * x = 54

We need to get 'x' by itself. If we divide both sides by 1.5 we get: 1.5/1.5 * x = 54 / 1.5

Now, let's simplify: (1.5 / 1.5) * x = 54 / 1.5 ---> (1) * x = 36 ---> x = 36

The answer is 36. So, 150% of 36 = 54. We could also write: 1.5 * 36 = 54.

50% of 180 is 90

But if you meant 150% of 36 then it is 54 because 100/150 times 54 = 36

Or 3 percent.
