Explanation:
 We assume that the number
#80# is#100%# because it's the output value of the task.  We assume that
#x# is the value we are looking for.  If
#80# is#100%# , we can write it down as#80=100%# .  We know that
#x# is#160%# of the output value, so we can write it down as#x=160%# .  Now we have two simple equations:
#1)" " 80=100%#
#2) " "x=160%#
where the left sides of both of them have the same units, and both right sides have the same units, so we can do something like that:
#80/x = (100%)/(160%)# 
Now we just have to solve the simple equation, and we will get the solution we are looking for.

The solution for what is
#160%# of#80# .
Now we have:
