# Danny just hired a new employee to work in your bakeshop. In one hour the employee burned 625 chocolate chip cookies. If this represented 25% of the day’s production, how many cookies did you plan on producing that day?

You know that the new employee burned

As you know, percentages are used to express fractions that have *denominator*. In this case, you can say that

#25% = 25/100#

This means that for every

#25/100 = 1/4 -># one chip burned for every four chips baked

Since you know how many chocolate chips were burned, you an *scale up* this number by using the

#625 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("burned"))) * "4 baked"/(1color(red)(cancel(color(black)("burned")))) = "2500 baked"#

Therefore, the bakeshop baked

To find the total number of cookies planned for production that day, divide the number of cookies burned in one hour by the percentage burned, then multiply by 100.

625 cookies burned / 25% = 2500 cookies planned for production.
