93x/100 = 45

Multiply throughout by 100,

93x = 4500

Dividing throughout by 93,

x = 4500/93 = 1500/31 = 48 12/31 ≈ 48.38

These solutions seem unnecessarily complicated.

45 divided by .93 = 48.38

Let the number that is 93% of 45 be X.

`X*93/100` = 45

=> X = `4500/93`

45 is 93% of `4500/93` .

Let x be the number whose 93% is 45

93% of x = x*93/100 and this is equal to 45, given.

x*93/100 = 45, multiplying both sides with 100/93 we get: 

x = 45*100/93 =4500/93

or x= 48.387 approximately

45 is 93% of 4500/93 or 48.387 approximately
