Answer:

The #90# adult tickets sold were #45%# of the #200# tickets sold to the concert.

Explanation:

Since #90# tickets out of #200# were adult tickets, the percentage (represented as #x#) can be calculated by this equation:

#200xxx/100=90#

#2cancel(200)xxx/cancel(100)=90#

#2x=90#

Divide both sides by #2#.

#x=45#
