Stephanie has \$67 to spend at a store. The store currently has a sale where the sale price is 23% off the marked price. What is the highest marked price that Stephanie can afford? (Round to the nearest cent, or hundredth of a dollar.)

can you please show it step by step?

sale price is 77% of marked price, so
marked = sale/.77

she has \$67, so
marked = 67/.77 = \$87.01
