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

100% - 45% = 55% = 0.55

Let x = original cost.

0.55x = 114.95
x = ?

thank you ms. sue-i am the mom and could not figure the formula out!

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).

Name 3 thing's that took place during the Renaissance?
