300 shirts

Step-by-step explanation:

Suppose the number of shirts is "x".

0.12x=36  Now let's divide both sides by 0.12

x=36/0.12

x=300

Step-by-step explanation:

You can divide 12% by itself to find one percent, then divide the 36 shirts by 12 as well.

What you do to one side, you need to do to the other.

Now that we have our numbers after dividing (you should have 1% and 3 shirts) you can see what 100% would be. To do this you would multiply 1% by 100 and multiply 3 shirts by 100.

Now we know that 12% of 300 shirts is 36 shirts.

Step-by-step explanation:

Because you cross multiply you have the fraction 12/100 and 36/X then you cross multiply 136 then divide that by 12 to get your answer
