Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1part A) If I call with p the price in September, then I can write this equation: \[\Large \begin{gathered} p + \left( {\frac{{20}}{{100}} \cdot p} \right) = 1.5 \hfill \\ \hfill \\ or: \\ \\ 1.2p = 1.5 \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \] please solve for p
