Jamb Maths Solution: 

$\begin{align}  & A=P+I,\text{  } \\ & P=\frac{100\times I}{T\times R} \\ & \text{Given }R=2percent,\text{ }T=5 \\ & A=5500=P+I \\ & I=5500-P \\ & P=\frac{100\times (5500-P)}{5\times 2} \\ & P=10\times (5500-P) \\ & P=55000-10P \\ & 11P=55000 \\ & P=\frac{55000}{11}=5000 \\\end{align}$
