(original price) - (35% of original price) = final sale price x - 0.35x = 52 solve for x

"just multiply the percentage of to the price paid and you will get the amount discounted. then add that to the amount paid and you will get original price" This answer seems to make sense,.........but think about it. taking the percent (35%) times the price paid does not reveal the original price, even if it is added to the price paid. That is not the amount discounted!, the amount discounted is 35% of the original selling price (not 35% of the price paid). See and understand the difference.
