Let list price = x
We know the toaster costs $75 which is 1/4 OFF the list price...
75 = x - 1/4x
75 = 3/4x
So then divide both sides by 3/4 to find "x" which is your list price.
x = ?
you gotta keep a toaster handy to warm your bread,
you feel me

$1.00? Because I got 100.
remember, 75 as in $75.. which is 3/4 of the original amount.
SO, original amount is bigger than $75 so...
list price = $100 not $1.. or else the toaster would be 75 cents (if you took off 1/4) LOL
Thank you, that was the correct answer.
Look, we can always double check by working backwards.
So list price is $100
1/4 of the list price is 100 * 1/4 = $25
So toaster after 1/4 of list price is taken off is : List price - 1/4 list price
Toaster after 1/4 of list price is taken off is : $100 - $25 = $75
which is correct :)!
