Beth bought a shirt for $6. This was 1/5 of the regular price. What was the regular price of the shirt?

  • math/fractions -

    You may need to set up a ratio and cross-multiply:

    6/x : 1/5

    If you cross-multiply -- 6•5 and 1•x -- what's the result? That will be the "regular price" of the shirt.
