Ben purchased a sweater for $25.10.  He got a 20% discount and tax was 8.25%.  what was the original price of the sweater?

Aug 15th, 2014

Original price($) =25.10 + (25.10*20%) - (8.25%)

                      =25.10 + (25.10*20/100) - (8.25/100)

                      =25.10 + (25.10/5) - (0.0825)

                     =25.10+ (5.2) -0.0825

                     =30.2175 

                    or, $30.26
