I believe I have the formula wrong for this one, because it doesn't check out.
Amy paid $54.77 for a pair of running shoes during a 25% off sale. What was the regular price?
I used the formula 54.77 = 25% * m
where m is the regular price
got 219.08 for the regular price and it doesn't sound right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0another way to look at it is to divide 54.77 by 3 and then add 54.77 back to it. That gives you 1/4 + 3/4 = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i never would have figured that one out! I did the check and it works out! 73.03 x 25% = 18.26 73.03  18.26 = 54.77
