if parts are marked up 20% before they are sold and the selling price for a seat cover is \$54 what was the original sale price.

Do I take \$54 * 20% then subtract from \$54 or??

1. So this means that the original price had 20% or .2 of the original price added on. After that, the price was 54. So, 54=(.2x)+x because x is the original price plus the 20% of the original price. want to know something weird? x+.2x=1.2xwhen you add them, imagine a 1 in front of the x, because there is one, while their is only 20% of the other x. confusing, but it works. so 54=1.2x You can do that on your calculator.
