(RM250 x 120%)

old price --- x

.8x = 250

x = 250/.8 = 312.50

check:

markdown on 312.50 = .2(312.50) = 62.50

new price = 312.50 - 62.50 = 250

I respectfully disagree, the answers are not the same

If I take a take a 20% markdown on your $300

I get $60, which would leave a new price of $240, not $250
