    25% * 64 =

    (25 : 100) * 64 =

    (25 * 64) : 100 =

    1,600 : 100 =

    16;

    Percentage solution with steps:

    Step 1: Our output value is 64.

    Step 2: We represent the unknown value with $x$x .

    Step 3: From step 1 above,$64=100/%$64=100% .

    Step 4: Similarly, $x=25/%$x=25% .

    Step 5: This results in a pair of simple equations:

    $64=100/% (1) $64=100% (1) .

    $x=25/% (2) $x=25% (2) .

    Step 6: By dividing equation 1 by equation 2 and noting that both the RHS (right hand side) of both

    equations have the same unit (%); we have

    $/frac{64}{x}=/frac{100/%}{25/%}$

    64

    x =

    100%

    25%

    Step 7: Again, the reciprocal of both sides gives

    $/frac{x}{64}=/frac{25}{100}$

    x

    64 =

    25

    100

    $/Rightarrow x=16$⇒x=16
