**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 6:28pmlet selling price be x

.9x = 1.3(97)

x = 126.1/.9 = 140.11

check

marked selling price = 140.11

actual selling price = .9(140.11) = 126.10

profit = 126.10-97 = 29.10

percentage of profit based on cost price

= 29.10/97 = .29998969

a 30 % profit is 100% + 30% = 130% = 1.3
