    She is charged $2200 interest on a loan for 1 year Let she borrowed x , then interest to be paid in a year \[I=x\times 11\%\] interest is 2200 \[2200=x\times \frac{11}{100}\] Can you find x?

    First step: Multiply both sides by 100, what would you get?

    \[2200\times 100=x\times \frac{11}{100}\times 100\]

    2200 x 100=220000 11/100 x 11=11

    \[220000=x\times 11\] Now divide both sides by 11 to find x
