Need help computing short-term and long-term gains.

On January 15, Ms. Sack contributed \$20,000 cash and investment property (FMV \$20,000 and \$2,000 basis) to Dylan LLC in exchange for a 10 percent interest. She had acquired the investment property in 1991. On December 3, she sold the interest for \$55,500. On the date of sale, Dylan had no hot assets, so Ms. Sack's entire \$33,500 gain was capital gain. How much of the gain is short term and how much is long term?
