Let x = monthly income.
$500 = x (.16)
x= ($500/.16)
x = $3,125
Therefore, their monthly income is $3,125.

Make the "16%" a decimal: 0.16, then divide 500 by 0.16 which is 3125

Percentage = Rate x Base (P=R x B), so Kallope's equation , $ 500 = x(.16) is right. We have to show where it all started. From that equation we can derive B= P/R, which is x (B) = $500/.16. AwesomeHelper, and Joanne (answer below) are correct, too. Smart kids :-)

You will just divide $500 and 16% so, 500 divided by .16 =$3 125
