let P = price paid for the phone

1.3P = 390

P = 300

let S = selling price

S = 0.8P = 0.8(300) = 240 - December 19th 2012, 02:59 PMasilvester635Re: word problem question

Let the original price = $100, 30% high means marked price = $130

When marked price = $130 original price = $100

When marked price = $1 original price = $100/130

When marked price = $390 original price = $(100/130) x 390 = $300

Now he has to sell it for 20% less. 20% of 300 = 20 x 300 x 1/100 = $60

So he will get $240 for cellphone - December 12th 2014, 11:24 AMjonesmyrtisRe: word problem question
