This month Jane walked a total distance of 36 miles. If this distance is 90% of the distance she walked last month, how much distance did Jane walk last month?

Question:

A
40 miles.

explanation

Step 1:

This month Jane walked a fraction of the distance she walked last month, 36 miles is part of a whole. To get the whole, you first have to turn the percentage into a decimal.

90% = 90/100

=0.9

Step 2:

We then divide the part by the decimal in the last step to get the whole.

36/0.9= 40.

As a way of checking, you can divide 36 by 40 and take note of the decimal you get.

36/40 = 0.9, which tells us that our answer is correct.

Jane walked 40 miles last month.
