Let the number we need be x.

Then we need t o to find the value of x such that:

35% of x = 14

`==gt 35/100 *x = 14`

Now we will simplify and solve for x.

`==gt 7/20 x = 14`

Now we will multiply by the reciprocal:

`==gt x = 14* 20/7 `

==> x = 2*20 = 40

**Then, 14 is 35% of 40.**

35/100x=14

7/20x=14

20/7*7/20x=14*20/7

x=40

14 is 35% of 40

14 is 35% of

set it up as a fraction

`(14)/x = (35)/(100) `

cross multiply

`x xx 35 = 35x`

`14 xx 100= 1,400`

`35x=1400 `

divide by 35 to get x by itself

`(35x)/(35) = (1400)/(35)`

x= 40

14 is 35% of some unknown x

(35/100)x = 14

Solve for x

x = 14/ (35/100)

x = 40
