Step 1: We make the assumption that 5000 is 100% since it is our output value.

Step 2: We next represent the value we seek with {x}.

Step 3: From step 1, it follows that {100\%}={5000}.

Step 4: In the same vein, {x\%}={600}.

Step 5: This gives us a pair of simple equations:

{100\%}={5000}(1).

{x\%}={600}(2).

Step 6: By simply dividing equation 1 by equation 2 and taking note of the fact that both the LHS
(left hand side) of both equations have the same unit (%); we have

\frac{100\%}{x\%}=\frac{5000}{600}
