Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

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

Therefore x% can be written as #x/100#.

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

#x/100 = 91/260#

#color(red)(100) xx x/100 = color(red)(100) xx 91/260#

#cancel(color(red)(100)) xx x/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(100))) = 9100/260#

#x = 35#

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