$440 final price. What was the price before if 15% was the mark up

May 26th, 2015

Since 440 is 115% of the original price:

440 / 115 = 3.8261 (1%)

To get the original:

3.8261 * 100 = $382.61

Have another question. Trying to figure $90000 is 60% of the total. How do I figure that?

May 26th, 2015

90000 / 60 gives you 1500 or 1%

1500 * 100 = $150000
