From the information we have  we know that 36% of that number is 0.24We find out first what just 1% of the number  will be.0.24 = 36%  (36% is 0.36 when you remove the percent)      x = 1 %  (1% is 0.01 when you remove the percent)where x is 1% of that number. Cross multiplying the above equation we get:x × 0.36 = 0.24×0.01x = 0.024 / 0. 36so 1% of that number is 0.24  × 0.01 /0.36Therefore 100% of that number will be:0.24 × 0.01 / 0.36 × 100 =  0.24/0.36 = 0.66Therefore the number is 0.66

x/100 = .24/36 100×.24 = x×36 24/36 = 36x/36 .67 = x rounded to the nearest tenth
