    Given:

    a + 15% of a = 46

    To find:

    The value of a.

    Solution:

    a + 15% of a = 46

    or, a + 15/100 × a = 46

    or, a + 15a/100 = 46

    or, (100a + 15a)/100 = 46

    or, 115a/100 = 46

    or, 115a = 46 × 100

    or, 115a = 4600

    or, a = 4600/115

    or, a = 40

    Hence:

    The value of a is 40.
