Actually.. The so called "best answer" is wrong.

To divide an amount by a percentage..

Say. We want 35% of 150.

Turn the percentage into a number by moving the (invisible) decimal behind the 5 in front of the 3. It will turn into 0.35

Now we multiply it by the number you want. In this case, it is 1050.

X=(0.35)(150)

x=52.5
