What is** **is 1/12 of x if 25% of x is equal to 24?

We'll write mathematically the given condition "25% of x is equal to 24": 25x/100 = 24

We'll multiply by 100 both sides: 25x = 24*100

We'll divide by 25: x = 24*4 x=96

Now, we'll calculate x/12: x/12 <=> 96/12=8** **

**Therefore, 1/12 of x is 8.**

It is given that 25% of x is equal to 24

=> x*(25/100) = 24

=> x/4 = 24

=> x = 96

1/12 of x is equal to 96*(1/12) = 96/12 = 8

**The required value of 1/12 of x = 8.**

(24x4)/12=8

You need to find x to tell what is `1/12` of x, hence you need to use the equation `(25/100)*x = 24` such that:

`(25*x)/(25*4) = 24=> `

`=gt x/4 = 24 =gt x = 4*24 =gt x = 96`

You need to find what is `1/12` of x, hence you need to substitute 96 for x such that:

`(1/12)*x =gt (1/12)*96 = 8`

**Hence, evaluating `1/12` of `x=96` yields 8.**
