Amy bought a pair of running shoes she paid $66.09 during a 20% off sale, what is the regular price of the shoes?

Would I take 66.09 divide by 20%?

  • Math 116a -

    No. If you did this: 66.09/0.2 = 330.45.

    Certainly the original price was not over $300.00

    would it be 79.30 66.09+20%

  • Math 116a -

    No. That isn't the answer, but at least it's close.

    100% - 20% = 80%

    Let x = the original price.

    0.8x = 66.09
    x = 66.09/0.8
    x =
