unknown value with x

step 1 above,$9900=100%

similarly ,x=10%

Answer:$900

Explanation:Step 1: Our output value is 9000.

Step 2: We represent the unknown value with x.

Step 3: From step 1 above,$9000=100\%$

Step 4: Similarly, x=10%

Step 5: This results in a pair of simple equations:

$9000=100

Step 6: By dividing equation 1 by equation 2 and noting that both the RHS (right hand side) of both

equations have the same unit (%); we have

\frac{9000}{x}=\frac{100\%}{10\%}

Step 7: Again, the reciprocal of both sides gives

\frac{x}{9000}=\frac{10}{100}$

\Rightarrow x=900$

Therefore, $10\%$ of $9000$ is $900$
