Let $\text{Chance(Positivity) }=x$ and so the $\text{Chance(Negativity) }=100-x$ (assuming that the number isn't 0).

We have the equation:

$100-x=x+\dfrac{100-x}{x}$

Multiplying, and simplifying, we get: $2x^2-101x+100 = 0$ Solving, $x = \dfrac{101 \pm \sqrt{101^2 - 4\cdot 2\cdot 100}}{4}$

Putting in our equation, we see that $x = \dfrac{101 + \sqrt{101^2 - 4\cdot 2\cdot 100}}{4}$ satisfies the condition, so it is the answer. $x = \dfrac{101 + \sqrt{101^2 - 4\cdot 2\cdot 100}}{4} \approx 49.48$
