6th grade math

if a shirt is 45 % off and the sale price is 114.95-what is the original cost?

please help me with this formula

  • 6th grade math -

    100% - 45% = 55% = 0.55

    Let x = original cost.

    0.55x = 114.95
    x = ?

    You're welcome, Abbie :-)

    Another way to do approach this problem is to divide 114.95 by 0.55 (which is what the equation does).
