OK, do the following. 12590 = 80% (original prince - 20%) 12590 / 80 = 157,375 157,375 * 100 = 15737,5 The original price is 15737,5

The original price was $104.00

3:2

The answer will depend on what information you do have.

To take a percentage of a price, multiply the price by the decimal equivalent of the percentage, which is the percentage divided by 100. 25 percent of 15.00 = 15 x 0.25 = 3.75 To take a percentage off a price, you can either subtract that number from the original price (15.00 - 3.75 = 11.25) or multiply the original price by the decimal equivalent of 100 percent minus the discount. (15 x 0.75 = 11.25)

Designate the original price as p. Then, from the problem statement, 80 % of p = 12590; p = 12590/0.80 = 15738. (If "20 percent" is considered to have only two significant digits, this should be written as "1.6 X 104 instead.)
