71.2% of his attempts = 468

let his total attempts be x, then

71.2 % of x = 468

( 71.2 / 100  ) * x = 468    

x = 468 *100 /  71.2

   = 46800 / 71.2

   = 657.303

since the number of attempts is a number

 rounding off 657.303 to 657

x= 657

   

so his total attempts, x = 657............................ANSWER
