If I bought an item with at discount of .75 and I paid $585.75 what was the original cost?
I guess you mean 75%?n=original price75% * n = 585.75n= 585.75/.75= original price
Original cost was [$585.75 + $0.75]
what are you buying that you get a 75% discount ?
If you got a 75% discount and paid $585.75, then the original price would be four times your purchase price or $2,343. Multiply that price by 75% to get your discount or 25% to see your purchase price.
If its 75% off, then it's 25% "on". You paid 25% of the price. .25 (original price) = 585.75. (I'm guessing you meant .75.....or 75%. off)
