    100/34 = 2.941176470588235 2.941176470588235 * 326.40 = 960

    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.

    because not all questions will be that easy they need to understand the method of how to work it out

    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.
