Here is my problem:
What number increased by 6% of itself equals 2650?
I've gotton to the point of: 1.06x=2650 0VER 1.06(in a fraction). But I'm stuck on what to do next. Hellllp.
i don't see your problem
Let the number be
.......Now divide both sides by 1.06
Note that "percentage" is just a fancy word for "over 100." so 6% means 6/100, 25% means 25/100. also note that "of" means "multiply." so 6% of x means 6/100 * x = 0.06 * x = 0.06x. and that's what we added to x
