Good job! Keep up the good work! But I think letter B is wrong.

Your mistake was:
You thought that 30 is the total. 30 is the part of an unknown number. Okay?

Correct answer:
29% divided by 29% = 1%
30 divided by 29 = 1.034
1.034 x 100 = 103.4

Answer: 103.4

Double check:

0.29 ---> decimal for 29%

103.4 x 0.29 = 29.986 or
30(rounded)
30 is the part
The total is 103.4

Just remember:
