11-125.

Solve each ratio problem below for $x$.

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

0.42x = 112

x ≈ 266.67

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

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

x = 37.5

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

See part (b).

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

$0.27\left(500\right) = x$
