a college bookstore marks up the price of textbooks by 25%. This results in the store selling textbooks for 25% more than the original cost to the store. If the bookstore charges $107.25 for a textbook. What is the book's original cost to the store?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

107.25 is the price after the increase, then is it 125%...since the original price would be 100%

125%.............>$107.25

100%...............>??

107.25x100/125

=$85.8
