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.

35/100 = (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.

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.

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.
