x-3/5x=16
x=40

OpenStudy (anonymous):
could you plz provide some explanation

OpenStudy (anonymous):
if the no is supposed to b x, then it is greater than its 3/5th by 16, mean the difference of the no n its 3/5th is 16

OpenStudy (amistre64):
i assume 3/5th is a percentage of some number that is 16 greater than the number?

n is greater than its (3/5)% by 16

OpenStudy (anonymous):
i dont think so

OpenStudy (anonymous):
though m not sure either :)

OpenStudy (amistre64):
I think its the same answer; but lets see :)
n(1+3/5) = n+16

OpenStudy (amistre64):
8n
--- = n+16
5
8n = 5n + 80
3n = 80
n = 80/3 = 2.666; maybe it is, maybe it aint lol
