Dominic bought a new alarm clock that was on sale for $18.75. If this price represents a 30% discount from the original price, what is the originial price to the nearest cent?

Answer:

S.p = 18.75
Here S.p. = 70% of Original price(o.p)( Because it has 30% Discount so Sp will be 70% of original price.)
18.75 = (30/100) * O.p
O.P. = (18.75 * 100) / 70
O.p. = $ 26.79 (Approx)
