35 = [(x-220)/220*100].
35/100 = (x-220)/220.
(35/100)*220 = x - 220,
0.35*220 = x-220,
77 = x-220,
x = 220 + 77,
x = 297.

35 = x-220/220*100.
x-220/220 = 35/100.
x-220/220 = 7/20.
20x-4400 = 1540.
20x = 1540+4400.
20x = 5940.
x = 5940/20.
x = 297.

See here,
35 = (x/220-220/220)*100.

35 = (x/220-1)*100.
35/100 = x/220 -1.

35/100+1 = x/220.
135/100 = x/220.

135100*220 = x.
297 = x.
