refurbished phone 35% of now only 78 pound how much was the phone before the discounted price

2 Answer

  • 120 pound is the full price.
  • Answer:

    120 pounds

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The cost of refurbished phone after 35% off = 78.00 pounds

    Let the cost of phone before the discount be x

    x - (35% of x) = 78

    x -  [tex]\frac{35}{100}x[/tex] = 78

    x - 0.35x = 78

    0.65x = 78

    x =  [tex]\frac{78}{0.65}[/tex]

    x = 120

    The cost of phone before the discount would be 120 pounds.
