i think that we should first get the concept right.
here , it ssays that x/y=96.12. what does this mean? it means that when x/y, 96 is the whole and .12 is the decimal.
its like saying 5/2=2.5. means that 5 , when divided by 2, leaves a remainder ,which when divided by 2 = 0.5 or 1/2.
or in other words, remainder/ divisor = decimal part of the ans
so remainder/ y = .12.
so y=9/.12 or 900/12 = 75.
