88 calories

#### Explanation:

As 100% means all of it, we can work out what percentage is not from carbohydrate by simply taking 60% away from 100%

Then, to work out the amount of calories, we work out 40% of 220. This could be done by turning 40 to a decimal (40/100 = 0.4) and multiplying it by 220, or it could be done by working out 10% by dividing 220 by 10, then multiplying it by 4.
