Let's use algebra to solve the problem: Let x be the number we're looking for. We know that "15% of a number" is the same as 0.15 times the number, so we can write: 0.15x = 12 To solve for x, we can divide both sides of the equation by 0.15: x = 12 Ã· 0.15 x = 80 Therefore, the number we're looking fRead more

Let’s use algebra to solve the problem:

Let x be the number we’re looking for.

We know that “15% of a number” is the same as 0.15 times the number, so we can write:

0.15x = 12

To solve for x, we can divide both sides of the equation by 0.15:

x = 12 Ã· 0.15

x = 80

Therefore, the number we’re looking for is 80.
