Answer:

5000

Explanation:

It is easier to see the percentage as decimals.
Let's convert it.

#6.5-:100=0.065#

So... a number we don't know,#x#, times #0.065## [6.5%]#, gives us #325#

#x(0.065)=325#

Now find #x#

Divide both sides by #0.065# to find #x#

#(xcancel0.065)/(cancel0.065)=325/0.065#

#x=325/0.065#

#x=5000#
