Adding percentages

55%+36%+88%+71%+100=63%
what is whole (X)?

Percents can be added directly together if they are taken from the same whole, which means they have the same base amount. .. . You would add the two percentages to find the total amount.

Result

X =  18

Solution:


0.55X+0.36X+0.88X+0.71X+X= 63

3.5X = 63

X = 18

Calculated by our simple equation calculator.
