Becaues 63 employees is 90% of the total amount, we can set up this equation because 90% is the same as 0.9. I am setting the total amount of employees equal to x.
x*0.9 = 63
Now, we solve for x. We do this by dividing both sides by 0.9.
x = 70
So, there is a total of 70 employees at Stalling Printing.
