Subject: Percentages

Can you give me ideas for teaching this lesson? Use a formula for finding the original price of a sale item when only the sale percent (ex. 30% off sale) and the sale price is given in the problem. Example: Joe bought a coat for $84.00 at a "30% Off Sale". What was the original price of the coat before the sale?
