    Unhappy Need help with a percentage problem

    I need some help please. I am terrible at coming up with this formula. I am a novice investor who feels that I am being taken advantage of.

    $210,000 = 46.667 %...

    what is the percentage of the following amounts? :
    A. $20,000
    B. $15,000

    Thanks,
    Coco

    The amount for 100% will be the ratio of money to percent: mathematically:

    \frac{x}{210000} = \frac{100\%}{46.667\%}

    x = \frac{210000 \times 100}{46.667}

    A. \frac{20,000}{x} = \frac{n}{100}

    for B change 20,000 to 15,000

    100/46.77777

    take that answer then multiply 210000 by it. this gives you 100%.
    from there its easy to get everything else

    My bad...I didn't explain this enough or maybe I did and just don't get it
    this involves a Limited Liability Company...
    51% of the Company is owned by management they have no financial investment. = $0

    49% is owned by the Limited Members =$210,000
    Someone just invested $10,000 for a 2.333 percent interest of the 49% thus diluting the 49%. I have $20,000 invested and my friend has $15,000. I cannot figure this out for the life of me and fear i am being taken to the cleaners .
    Hope that helps.
    Thanks
