See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

"Percent" or "%" means "out of 100" or "per 100",

Therefore x% can be written as $\frac{x}{100}$.

We can now write this express and solve for $x$:

$\frac{x}{100} = \frac{91}{260}$

$\textcolor{red}{100} \times \frac{x}{100} = \textcolor{red}{100} \times \frac{91}{260}$

$\cancel{\textcolor{red}{100}} \times \frac{x}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{100}}}} = \frac{9100}{260}$

$x = 35$

91 is color(red)(35%) of 260
