Get rid of the percentage and re-write the equation using fractions:

$\displaystyle 16 \frac23 \% \cdot d = \frac{50}3 \% \cdot d = \frac{50}3 \cdot \frac1{100} \cdot d = \frac{50}{300} \cdot d = \frac16 d$

So your equation becomes:

$\displaystyle \frac16 d = 4$

Solve for d. - May 1st 2012, 12:54 PMBuilderjay2011Re: Linear equation with percentage
