The sales price of a car is 12,590, which is 20% off the original price. What is the Original price?

  • Math -

    Let x equal the original price. Solve for x

    0.8x = 12,590

    We'll be glad to check your answer.

  • Math -

    .8x/.8 = 12,590/.8
    x= 15,737.50
    But where did you get 0.8 from?

  • Math -

    Yes. Your answer is correct. The original price of the car was $15,737.50.

    I used 0.8 because with a 20% discount, the customer pays 80% (or 0.8) of the original price.
