A shop reduces al its 30% in a closing down scale. What is the original price of a television now priced at £175? Explain your working carefully.

Do I do 175/ 100 x 30 = £53
£175 + £53 = £228 is the original price of the television.

is this right??

You could set up a proportion.

175/x = 70/100

Solve for x. What answer do you get?

so would the price be £250??

Yes. The original price was 250.

thank you
