100% of something is all of it, exactly one of it.  Example   100% of 6 = 1.00*6 = 6  If you are starting with some fraction and you want to find the whole amount, you can divide what you have by the fraction that you have.  Example   170 = 85% of (what?)   170/85% = (what?)    (divide both sides by 85%. Remember "of" means "times".)   200 = (what?)    (this is 100% of "what?")  You know that 100% = 1, so 1% = 1/100 = 0.01    (move the decimal point and drop the % sign to convert to decimal from percent)
