# 22 is 5 percent of what number?

Algebra

440

Just $7 Welcome

This can be written in the equation:

##22=.05x##

As with any equation, you solve for ##x##:

##22/.05=(.05x)/.05##

440 = ##cancel (.05x)/cancel .05##

440 = ##x##

We can prove this is correct by doing:

440##*##.05

If we solve we get: 440##*##.05 = 22.

Thus we know this is correct.

Hope this helps!
