This isvery embarassing but since math and specifically percentages was my worst subject in school here goes. If I have a figure such as 425 and that amount represents 10% of the total amount how do I find out what the total amount is?
10% of the total amount is 10/100 times the total amount. But 10/100 is 1/10, thus 1/10 times the total amount is 425. Hence the total amount is 10 times the 425 which is 4250.
