8. Reid's Hardware discounts all riding lawnmowers 8% to customers paying in cash. If Trey paid $1,175.21 in cash for a riding lawnmower, which of the following equations can be used to determine the original price of the lawnmower? (Let x represent the original price of the lawnmower and y represent the discounted price.) y = 1.08x y = 0.92x y = x - 8x y = 1.8x

    if x is the original price then 0.08x is 8% of x so y = x - 0.08x y = 0.92x
