Could someone please help me figure out this question. If I paid $76.08 for something that was 40% off, what was the regular price? I got $127.98 but when I check my answer I am off by 2 cents. What am I doing wrong?

  • Algebra -

    76.08/x= 60/100

    Cross multiply and simplify if needed.

    I looked at the website but I still do not get this

  • Algebra -

    76.08/x= 60/100

    76.08 * 100 = 60x
    7608 = 60x
    ?? = x

    Another way to solve this problem:

    .6x = 76.08
    x = ??
