If I add 20% to a number and end with 90, what number did I start with?

N  + .20N   = 90  simplify

 

1.20N   = 90       divide both sides by 1.20

 

N  = 75  = the number you started with

 

Verify

 

75  +  20%  of 75  =

 

75  +  (20/100)*75  =

 

75  +  (1/5)*75  =

 

75  +  15  =

 

90  ....

120%=90

1%=90/120

100%=90/120*100=75! Just like what CPhill got!
