Nov 16, 2016

40%

#### Explanation:

The equation for percents is

$\text{Percent" xx "Whole" = "Part}$

So all you have to do is identify the parts of the equation. We don't know the percent, but we know everything else, so we can plug what we know into the equation

$P \times 55 = 22$

$\frac{55}{22} = P$

P = 0.4=40%
