Answer:

#$5.50#

Explanation:

To solve this problem, turn it into an equation. Here are some tips to remember:

  1. "Is" means "equals", so wherever you see "is", use a #=# sign.
  2. "Of" means "multiplication", so use a #xx# sign when you see that word.
  3. #25%# is the same as #25/100# as a fraction, or #0.25# as a decimal. I'm going to use the fraction form in the equation.
  4. Use variables for the things you do not know. I will use the variable #x#.

#stackrel(x)overbrace"What"stackrel(=)overbrace"is"stackrel(25/100)overbrace"25%"stackrel(xx)overbrace"of"stackrel(22)overbrace"22"#

#x = 25/100 xx 22#

#x = 25/100 xx 22/1#

#uarr#anything over 1 is itself, so putting 22 over 1 does not change it's value

#x = (25 xx 22)/(100 xx 1)#

#x = 550/100#

#x = 5.5#

#$5.50# is #25%# of #$22#.
