Why the precision? Isn't it more important to understand that Keisha got the table for 1/3 of the regular price? In other words the regular price is 3 times the price she paid.

But it is not intuitively obvious why (or event that) 100/34*price paid = original price. It seems we are encouraging the student to apply a rote formula the problem.
