Example 1
New Price = $85 Sale: 40%
In this example, we have identified that the new price
(85) = old price x 0.6. We have then used the reverse
operation to calculate the original price of the item.

Example 2
New Price = $275 Sale: 50%
In this example, we have identified that the new price
(275) = old price x 0.5. We have then done the reverse
operation to find the original price of the item.

Example 3
New Price = $139 Sale: 70%
In the last example, we have identified that the new price (139) = old price x 0.3. WE have used the reverse operation to
find the original price of the item.
