I bought a pair of shoes for $51. The shoes were already marked 75% off. What is the original price of the shoes.

  1. Gina

    $204.

  2. Ms. Sue

    Right.

  3. Alina

    So here's how you do it!
    $51 is 25% because 100%-75% is 25% :)
    So...

    51-25
    x-100

    Cross multiply and solve for x!
