Answer:

X=96

Explanation:

You have to think backwards to solve this problem. To get 24, you would multiply .25 by some number ( in this case we don't know what that number is). We are going to call that number we don't know X.
So we know,

#x*.25=24#

now, we need to solve for x and we can do that by diviving 24 by .25. You're going to get 96.

Answer:

#x=96#

Explanation:

Let the Unknown number be #x#
Then form an equation like this

#x xx 25/100=24#

Solve it for #x#

#x xx 25/100 xx 100 = 24 xx 100#

To cancel 100, multiply both sides with 100

#x xx 25/cancel100 xx cancel100 = 2400#

#x xx 25 = 2400#

To cancel 25, divide both sides by 25

#x xx 25/25 =2400/25#

#x xx cancel25/cancel25 =96#

#x=96#
