hi,

how can i do this...

i did this...

10x0.8=8

then to reverse it i tied this

8x1.2=9.6

so how can i undo both of these to get back to 10?

this is for a shopping cart and i reduced all my items by 20% using the price x 0.8. Then i tried to make it back up by doing this price x 1.2. But this didnt work so how can get the original price back?

hi,

the only problem is that i have the price that has allready been discounted by 20% and multiplied by 1.2. This cannot be reversed! Now i have tried to multiply by 1.25 so i need to reverse this...

price x 0.8 x 1.2 x 1.25
