What is 35% of a number if 12 is 15% of a number?

15%x = 12
25%x = 12/15%*35% = 12 * 7/3 = 4*7 = 28

IMO C

Here 12 = $$\frac{15}{100}$$*x
x = $$\frac{12}{15}$$*100

Now, we have to find 35% of x
hence $$\frac{35}{100}$$*x = $$\frac{35}{100}$$*$$\frac{12}{15}$$*100

35% of x = 28

Answer (C).

Letting n = the number, we have:

12 = 0.15n

80 = n

So 35% of the number is 0.35 x 80 = 28.

Answer: C
