### A store is having a 20 percent off sale if the reduced price of an item is percent 53.60 what was its original price?

$67. Arithmetic will solve this. x-x*0.2 = 53.6, where x is the
original sale price. Simplifying gives x*(1-0.2) - 53.6 or x*(0.8)
= 53.6. Dividing the 0.8 through gives x = 67. Finding a reduced
price is simply subtracting the original price multiplied by the
discount (in fraction form from the original price.

### How do you solve total cost for something that is 52 dollars and 20 percent off and the sales tax is 7 percent?

Assuming the discount is applied before the sales tax is
added... 20% of 52 is 10.4, so the price after discount is 41.60.
7% of 41.60 is 2.91 - so your final price is 44.51

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### How do you solve a markup?

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 add a percentage to a price, you can either add that number
to the original price ($15.00 + $3.75 = $18.75) or multiply the
original price by the decimal equivalent of 100 percent plus the
discount. (15 x 1.25 = $18.75)

### When you use a coupon for 15 percent off the original price of a headset you pay 27. What is the original price of the headset Include your equation with the unknown x as well as your answer?

Let the original price be x;
The 15% of x is 15/100 × x
→ the original price less the discount gives the price paid:
x - 0.15x = 27
→ 0.85x = 27
You can now solve for x.
-------------------------------------------
You can also work in percentages:
the whole price is 100%
The discount is 15%
→ the amount paid is 100% - 15% = 85%
→ 85% of x = 27
→ 85/100 × x = 27
→ 0.85x = 27
as before

### Jb's music store is offering a 20 percent discount on all cds and dvds if the discounted price of a CD is 16.80 then the original price of the CD was?

I assume you're doing this for school, so I'll explain the
answer.
If it's 20% off, then it's 80% of the original price (100% is
full price). Let's call the original price P, for Price. 80% of
something is the same as multiplying that something by .8 (since
you can always multiply something by one, and .8 is 80% of 1).
Eighty percent of the original price is $16.80, thus .8 (P) =
$16.80
You need to solve for P, so you need...

### If a discount of 20 percent off the retail price of a desk saves Mark 45 dollars how much did he pay for the desk?

Mark paid $180 for the desk.
Mark paid 100% - 20% = 80% of the original price. If 20% of the
original price is $45, then, 80% being 4 times 20%, Mark's cost
would be 4 times $45, or $180.
Call "price" the original, undiscounted price; call "cost"
Mark's cost after the discount. Express percentages as fractions of
100. Then algebraically we can write two equations and then solve
them together:

### How do you find the locus of all points that lie on the graphs of both x plus 2y equals 1 and 2x -y equals 12?

You solve the two equations simultaneously. There are several
ways to do it; one method is to solve the first equation for "x",
then replace that in the second equation. This will give you a
value for "y". After solving for "y", replace that in any of the
two original equations, and solve the remaining equation for
"x".
