## Answers ( No )

say the original price is “x”, and therefore is the 100% of the price, however Belk’s is having a sale and the pants were 20% off, therefore 12.50 is really just 100% – 20% or 80% of the original price.

now, we know 12.50 is the 80%, and “x” is the 100%, what the dickens is “x” anyway?
