How to find the base number from the total amount and percentage?


Do you have a formula for finding the base amount. Let me explain Suppose 25% of 500 is 125. If you add this % i.e. 500+125=625 Now the question is, if you were given the % and total amount how can you find out the original number i.e. 625 and 25% how will you find out the base number 500? Any solution will be highly appreciated.
