    Osvoldo did not meet his goal

    Step-by-step explanation:

    To know the percentage of carbohydrates that Osvoldo ate from grains with respect to the total, we simply have to divide the amount of carbohydrates he got with the grains by the total

    55 / 220 = 0.25

    then to express it as a percentage this number has to be multiplied by 100

    0.25 * 100 = 25%

    Osvoldo wanted to reach 30% and only got 25%

    25% < 30%
