55 88 --> 55x+8800 x=160 100 x

x% of y = $$\huge{\frac{x}{100}*y}$$ similarly : $\huge{\frac{55}{100}*88}$

There's an easy way of doing this without a calculator. 1) take 50% of 88... divide it in half. 2) now add 5%. Because 50% is easy to calculate, you can divide this number by 10 to find 5%. 3) Add them together!

^^ So, without using a calculator, I get: $88\div2=44$ then, $44\div10=4.4$ Thus, $44 + 4.4=48.4$
