How would you work this problem? Thanks!

Josie paid $72.00 for a baseball glove. Price reflected 10% discount off regular price. What was regular price?

  • Math -

    assume x is the undiscounted price
    100% of x - 10% of x = 72
    1.00x - 0.10x = 72
    x (1.00-0.10) = 72
    x (0.90) = 72
    x = 72 / 0.90
    x = 80

    Regular price is $80.00
