    42 sandwiches were not tuna salad.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given,

    Number of sandwiches sold = 56

    Tuna salad sandwiches = 25%

    No. of tuna salads = 25% of total sold

    No.\ of\ tuna\ salads=\frac{25}{100}*56\\\\No.\ of\ tuna\ salads=\frac{1400}{100}\\\\No.\ of\ tuna\ salads=14

    14 sandwiches were tuna salads, the remaining will not be, therefore;

    Remaining sandwiches = Total sold – No. of tuna salads

    Remaining sandwiches = 56 – 14 = 42

    42 sandwiches were not tuna salad.
