Carousel Toys has Romper Buckaroos, wooden rocking horses for toddlers, on a 30% markdown sale for $72.09. What was the original price before they were marked down?
Round to the nearest cent.
$

so the $72.09 represents 70% of the original price
.7x = 72.09
x = 72.09/.7 = $102.99
check by taking off 30% of that
