# Obtaining the total from a percentage

$x$ is $20$ percent of $t$.

t=?; //to compute
x=198;

Example

compressed = 64;
uncompressed = (100 / 20) * 64;

//is it correct?

How can I compute $t$?

@Harold, Sometimes a problem has multiple solutions. –  kannanrbk Apr 19 '13 at 18:32
@Harold , All of them are not know all the things. It's simple and trivial , I know. It's depend on the scenario. –  kannanrbk Apr 19 '13 at 18:38
I have deleted Harold's completely inappropriate comment. @Harold: Any further such incident will be cause for a suspension. –  Zev Chonoles Apr 19 '13 at 19:50

x is 20% of t means: $x=0.2\cdot t \quad \implies \quad t=5\cdot x$
