well x+0.35x=670 => 1.35x=670 x=670/1.35=496.3 make sense?
yes i have to do all of this without a calculator
you should
do you know how I got the equation in the first place?
no see i have a learning disability and sometimes things are a little complicating for me to understand.
nah you don't.. it's as you said that 670 is the original cost plus 35% profit.. so considering x the original cost we will have: 670=x+35%(x) which is the same as 670=x+0.35x I hope it's clear
ok i got it now thank you so much :D
you're welcome :)
