Answer:

#x=214.25#

Explanation:

#73%# means #73/100#

Let #73%# of #x# be #156.4#

This means #73/100# of #x# is #156.4# and in equation form, we can write it as

#73/100 xx x=156.4=1564/10#

or #73/100 xx 100/73 xx x=1564/10xx100/73#

or #x=1564/10xx100/73#

As #73# is a prime number and #1564# is not a multiple of #73#,

we have to use a calculator and using it to calculate (up to 2dp)

#x=214.25#
