1/x = x%Date: 04/16/2001 at 20:24:47 From: Greg Osman Subject: Value of X For what value of x does 1/x = x% ? Date: 04/17/2001 at 11:26:57 From: Doctor Twe Subject: Re: Value of X Hi Greg - thanks for writing to Dr. Math. Think of the definition of percent. x% means x/100, so the problem can be written as: 1/x = x/100 Can you solve it from there? If you need more help, or have any more questions, write back! - Doctor TWE, The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ |
