Density= mass/volume (One of my old teachers had us remember
this as Dogs Make Vomit, gross).

So, plugging the numbers into the formula:

Density= 55 g/85 cm3 = .65 g/cm3

Note, that I rounded the answer up and, for future reference, that
1 cm3 is equal to 1 ml, another common unit used for density.

### If 1 cc of a substance has a mass of 1.5 grams what is its density?

Density is defined as the amount of matter (mass) per unit of
volume of a specific substance, and is calculated by dividing the
mass of any sample of the substance in question by its volume.
Considering the unit of density as g/cm3 (grams per cubic
centimeter or grams per cc), the density of the substance in your
question is exactly 1.5 g/cm3.
