Very easy percentage problem. (See if you can solve it!)

  1. Sep 3, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If ##a+2b## is equal to ##125\%## of ##4b##, what is the value of ##a/b## ##?##

    2. Relevant equations

    Shown above.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    The only knowledge you really need to solve this problem is to know that ##100## is the basis of percentages, after that the problem can numerically be solved relatively easily.
