You need to find out what number x is 100%.
Start out with the facts known, 50 is 20% of this x, and write it down in mathematical symbols. This is just a translation of the words in your problem to the shortcut equation language used in math, the meaning is exactly the same, and with a little more experience you will easily move between these two.
50 = x * ( 20 / 100 )
Remember, 'percent' is from latin "per one hundred".
Multplying left and right side of the equation by 100 yields:
50 * 100 = x * ( 20 / 100 ) * 100, consolidation results in:
5000 = x * 20. Divide both sides by 20:
5000 / 20 = x * 20 / 20, consolidate:
250 = x.
This is your result, 250.
