Good afternoon!I'm homeschooled so they only give us workbooks and ect. They explain how to do the problems but it confuses me. Here is 1 out of the 5 q's I don't get.
A printer is on sale for \$129.99. This is 25% off the regular price. what is the regular price? Solve each problem by writing an equation.

• math -

if it's 25% off, then 129.99 is 75% of the regular price

129.99 = .75p
p = 129.99/.75 = 173.32

• math -

how did you get 173.32?

• math -

173.32 . Steve even worked it out.

• math -

173.32. me and my dad did it at the same time.
