I am not clear what the question means. The answer above is for the question 50 - 0.32. I read it differently and thought that the question is to reduce 50 by 32% to find x. Have you any fuller version of the question?

I was not clear what the question meant either, is it 32% of 50 or 32% of x. If the question is x equals 50 minus 32% of 50 then 32% of 50 is 16 (multiply 50 by 32 and divide by 100 or 32% of 100 is 32, 50 is half of 100 so 32% of 50 is half of 32 ie 16). Subtract 16 from 50 to give 34, so x = 34.
