# 120 is 15 percent of what number?

###### Wiki User

To solve this you need to work out how big a number 1 percent of the number would be.

So if 120 is 15 % then 1% = 120/15 = 8

Thus if 1 % of the number = 8, you need to make this up to 100% by multiplying by 100.

8*100 = 800

So the number is 800.

I hope you can follow this and that you will now be able to work with %.
