Im not sure how to describe this problem, but heres goes:

I have a starting number, lets say 100. I want to figure out what number 100 is 70% percent of, when its added to 30% of its remainder. So in this case that number would be around 130:

130 x 0.7 = 91

130 - 91 = 39

39 x .3 = 11.7

91 + 11.7 = 102.7

What is the formula to solve this?
