How do you find a number that minus a percentage of itself is a certain number?

What would be the formula (in a spreadsheet like pages.app) to find that 100 - 20% = 80, if you only know the percentage and the result (in this example 20% and 80)
I've tried googling this but I don't think I know the name or term of what I'm looking for, reverse percentage doesn't seem right...
