That works only if you know the total.  Not if you want to know the total and are only given a fraction of the total in order to find the total.  If 60 percent of a total is 900, divide 900 by 60, giving you 15. 15 is 1 percent of the total, therefore the remainder 40 percent is 15 times 40, which is 600, making the total (not given) 1500.
