1/8 of 2,000 is 10% of what number?

Let number be x .

So

1/8 of 2,000 = 10% of x 

`1/8xx2000=10/100 xx x`

`250=1/10 xx x`

`250xx10=x`

`x=2500`

Thus,  1/8 of 2,000 is 10% of 2500 .

QUESTION:-

1/8 of 2,000 is 10% of what number?

SOLUTION:-

In order to solve this problem easily we can form a equation;

Let x be the unknown number;

1/8 of 2000 = 10% of X

Therefore this question can be divided into 2 parts;

1/8 of 2000 = ?

10% of x = ?

1/8 of 2000 

1/8 x 2000

= 250

Now Solve the other part;

10% of x = 250

10/100 . x = 250

Now transpose 100 to the RHS and multiply with 250;

10x = 250 . 100

x = 25000/10

x = 2500

Therefore 1/8 of 2000 is 10% of 2500.

Hence Solved.

In order to solve this question we will have to convert 1/8 into percentage form first.

1/8*100=12.5%

So, 12.5% X 2000

=250

Now, in order to find out that 250 is 10% of what number, we consider that:

         250  =10% of x

Hence, on carrying 10% to the left hand side,

=250X100/10= x

Therefore, x= 2500.

First divide 2000 by 8 and you get 250 

`250/x=1/10`

`2500=x`

 the number is 2500
