sales at a deli decreased 20.5% this month campared to last month. if sales this month were $75,366, what were the sales last

May 29th, 2015

Let the sales in last month be 'x' $

Decrease % = 20.5%

So the sales in this month will be (100-20.5) % of x = 79.5% of x = 75366$

                                                                                 = 79.5* x/100 = 75366

                                                                     so x = 75366 *100/79.5

                                                                             =  94800 $

Please let me know if you have any questions and best me if you are satisfactory.
