### If 15 percent of an amount is 140 dollars. What is the total amount?

15% of ? = $140
Set it up as an equation by changing the percent into a
decimal.
.15x=140
So, divide both sides by .15. This will cancel out .15 on the
left side of the equation, leaving x alone. The right side will be
140/.15 which equals 933.33
Your new equation is x=933.33
Now change that into money, and your answer is
$933.33
