    Urgent

    A dress that sells for $50.00 now has a %10 discount marked on the tag. How much will you save off the regular price of the dress?

    Too many questions, eh?

    Next time, please reduce the numbers. We hate doing long homeworks.

    ---------
    x = regular price
    10% = discount
    So selling price is 90% of x.

    0.90x = 50.00
    x = 50.00/0.90
    x = $55.55 or $55.56

    10% of $55.55
    = 0.10*55.55
    = $5.55 -----what you'd save off the regular price.
