Problem: If $922,774,069 = 46.45%, what is 100% Thanks a million. --Mike In general, if you have x = y % ? = 100 % The unknown ("?") can be computed as follows ? = (100/y) * x In your case $922,774,069 = 46.45% ? = 100 % ? = (100/46.45) * 922,774,069 ? = 1986596488.697 =~ 1,986,596,488.70 Hope this helps Mahurshi Akilla
