The Johnsons ordered new carpet for their family room. That paid 33% of the total cost when they ordered it, and will pay the remaining amount when the carpet is delivered. If they paid $192.72 when they ordered the carpet, how much will they pay when it is delivered?

  • Math -

    0.33x = 192.72

    x = 192.72 / 0.33

    x = ?

  • Math -

    .33x = 192.72
    x = 192.72/.33 = 584.00

    so 67% of 584 = 391.28
