Five percent of a batch of fuses were found to be faulty during an inspection. If 27 fuses were faulty, how many fuses were inspected? It is really making no sense to me...

This question can definitely be answered. Here it is already given that 5% of the batch of inspected fuses were found to be faulty. The number of faulty fuses is also given and it is 27.Now Let us assume that the number of fuses inspected = x Number of faulty fuses = 5x/100 Now if we put all the given information's together, then we get an equation and that is: 5x/100 = 27 5x = 2700 x = 2700/5    = 540 So the total number of fuses inspected is 540
