Last night, the two dinner specials at Aisha’s favorite restaurant were salmon filet and steak. The restaurant served 55 specials in all, 40% of which were salmon filets. How many salmon filets did the restaurant serve?


  1. Answer:
    22 salmon filets.
    Step-by-step explanation:
    First of all, the restaurant served 55 specials.
    You would then take 40% of 55 and you would get 22. (or do 0.4 x 55)
    The 40% were the salmon filets, and so you get your answer.
    the other 60% are steaks, but we aren’t looking for that.
