if you get 35% off you pay 65% of the price. you don't know what the original price is, but you know that \[.65P=224\] so solve via \[P=224\div .65\]

Come on cspyder90! Don't you see that this is the same problem that you posted just a couple of minutes ago? The suit is again selling for about 1/3 of the regular price. If you had understood that the original price of the table in previous question was about 3 times what was actually paid, then you would have understood that the original price of this suit was about 3 times what was actually paid.

Just one more follow up. Luis suggests that the answer is 640 but satellite73 suggests $344.17 (rounded to the nearest cent). I claim the original price should be close to 3 times the sale price. Luis' precise answer meshes well with my rough estimate while satellite73's answer doesn't match up at all. So I go with Luis.
