Answer:

#x = 110%#

Explanation:

Interpretation;

Let the percent be represented by #x%#

#x% color(white)x "of" color(white)x 80 = 88#

Note: #"of" = xx and a% = a/100#

#x% xx 80 = 88#

#80x% = 88#

#x% = 88/80#

#x% = 1.1#

#x/100 = 1.1#

Cross multiplying;

#x = (1.1 xx 100)%#

#x = 110%#

For clarification;

#110% color(white)x "of" color(white)x 80 = 110/100 ⋅ 80 = 88#
