Okay so mark paid 20% less, which means that the suit cost him 80% of the original
So: $664 - 80% $x - 100%
x = (cross multiply and divide by what's left) = 664*100/80

i know thats the answer im confused how to set it up..is it 664/100 times x/100
bahrom, always trying to get fans, lol
right basically, what bahrom has done is he knows that you have 80% of the original cost, so he has made it so that you can work out what 1 % costs you then times it by 100 to get it to 100% (i.e. the original price)
