11-35.

Solve each ratio problem below for x.

1. Forty-two percent of $x$ is $112$.

$0.42x = 112$

$x ≈ 266.67$

1. Forty-two is $x$ percent of $112$.

$42=112\frac{x}{100}$

$x = 37.5$

1. Twenty-seven is $x$ percent of $100$.

See part (b).

1. Twenty-seven percent of $500$ is $x$.

$0.27(500) = x$
