Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we started with 100 parts, and then added 2 more parts to get to where we are now; so we have 102 parts. we could divide it into its 102 parts, and add up 100 of them to determine the original amount ....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can just divide it to solve. This is working backward. So: 37,470/1.02 = answer
