**gretchen**, Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 10:03amI am trying to help my son with the same problem. At first I thought the above answer was correct too. Then I started to second guess myself because $50-$100 is the SALE price so we need to find the ORIGINAL price THEN take 25% off that to get the sale price. The above answer (52, 56, 60, 64....) is if we take 25% off of the sale price ($50-$100). I think we are doing it backwards. ????? I understand that it's every 4 numbers but I think it may be 68, 72, 76.....

If we assume $68 is the original price and take 25% of $68, then we get a sale price of $51. Any thoughts? Again, I have no idea which way is correct.
