Sonia is selling her house through a real estate agent whose commission is 6% of the selling price. What should be the selling price so Sonia can get $84,600?

Ms. Sue
1.06 * 84,600 = ?

Kat
89,676
but I thought I had to set up problem as an algebraic? 
Kat
0.96 x = 84,600
x = 84,600/0.96
x = $ 88,125 selling price 
Ms. Sue
It should be 0.94x

Kat
wait I think it would be 0.94 not 0.96 . the answer would be 90,000

Ms. Sue
Test out both answers.
Take 0.06 of both numbers and see which one equals 84,600
