Assuming it was not compounded interest:

X = $420 * 100/7

#### Explanation:

Assuming it was not compounded interest:

The equation is looking for X, the amount of money invested.

The equation would be:

X * 7/100 = $420

Then solve for X by multiplying each side by 100/7 gives you:

X = $420 * 100/7
