| The area of the aquarium is 60 m2, and this is 30% of the total area of the zoo.

Let’s designate the entire area of the zoo as 100%.

We make a short note:

X m2 – 100%

60 m2 – 30%

It turns out the equation X / 60 = 100/30

We solve the equation according to the principle of proportion.

X = 60 * 100/30 = 6000/30 = 200 (m2)

Answer: The area of the zoo is 200 m2
