Posted by on .

The price of a fan increased by 25% to $48.75. Find the original price of the fan.

This is how I did it.
100/25%=400.
48.75-4.00= 44.25.
I'm not sure if I'm solving it the correct way can someone help please

  • Math - ,

    not quite....

    let the original price be x
    1.25x = 48.75
    x = 48.75/1.25 = $39.00

    check:
    25% of 39 = 9.75
    new price =39+ 9.75 = 48.75
