Explanation:

Converted 6% into decimal form

#6/100=0.06#

#12/0.06=200#

multiplied 200 by 6% in decimal form to prove that 6% of 200 is 12

#x# = 6%
#y# = 12
#z# = 200

#x%# of #z# is #y#

convert #x%# into decimal form
divide #x# by 100, always divide a percentage by 100 when converting any percentage to decimal form.

divide #y# by #x/100# to find #z#

#y-:x/100=z#
