Answer:50 cards

Step-by-step explanation:We can start by saying that his total card collection has x cards in it, meaning that 28% or 28/100 of his total cards, x, is equal to 14. Next, we can divide by 28/100 on both sides, and dividing is the same as multiplying by the reciprocal. The reciprocal of 28/100 is 100/28, so 14 * 100/28 is equal to 100/2, which is 50. We can say that 50 cards were in his card collection initially.
