    Take the $78.26 and multiply that by 2, and then ADD another $78.26 to it and that will be the Original Price of whatever the item is.

    x is the original price x(.75) = 78.26 x= 78.26/.75 or x-(x*.25) = 78.26 x-.25x = 78.26 --on the left, original price minus 25% (.25*x is the calculation for deducting 25%) x(1-.25) = 78.26 .75x = 78.26 x = 78.26 /.75 original price = 104.35
