Could someone please help me figure out this question. If I paid $76.08 for something that was 40% off, what was the regular price? I got $127.98 but when I check my answer I am off by 2 cents. What am I doing wrong?

76.08/x= 60/100
Cross multiply and simplify if needed.

I looked at the website but I still do not get this

76.08/x= 60/100
76.08 * 100 = 60x
7608 = 60x
?? = x
Another way to solve this problem:
.6x = 76.08
x = ??
