wat do u mean by ur question? if the price goes down by 5.8% say for example $25 that will be $23.55.

then the rate that it should increase to be $25 again

if that's it, then you'll need $1.45 for it be $25 again.

i'm not really sure bout it. correct me if I am wrong. :) - February 3rd 2009, 11:45 PMjavax
Let v1 be the first price, v2 the second(down price), p2 be the percentage required.

now you have

From here you can find p2, which is the percentage required. (answer p2 = 6.15%). As it is mentioned in the above post. - February 3rd 2009, 11:47 PMprincess_21
