If we take 30% of some number and add 60.2, we get the original number. What is it?

original number is 86

\tiny \large \color{aqua}explanation:

Assume that the number you are looking for is x.

Changing this to an equation, we will get:

30% * x + 60.2 = x

This can be written as:

0.3x + 60.2 = x

Now, we will solve for x as follows:

0.3x + 60.2 = x

x – 0.3x = 60.2

0.7x = 60.2

x = (60.2) / (0.7)

x = 86

hope its help
