if a shirt is 45 % off and the sale price is 114.95-what is the original cost?
please help me with this formula
100% - 45% = 55% = 0.55
Let x = original cost.
0.55x = 114.95
x = ?
thank you ms. sue-i am the mom and could not figure the formula out!
You're welcome, Abbie :-)
Another way to do approach this problem is to divide 114.95 by 0.55 (which is what the equation does).
