I will tell you how I got all of these answers. For the first one is just plug in the number in is /of = percent / 100.It would look like X/30=75/100. Then you would cross multiply 30 x 75 to get 2,250. Then you would divide that by 100 to get 22.5. I just rounded down.Then you would do the same for the next one just replace the 75 with 90.For the last question what I did was take the answer from B and replace the 30 and replace the 90 with the 55. And follow the same steps. I hope that this helps you.
