A jacket is on sale for 70% of the original price. If the discount saves $45, what is the original price of the jacket.

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

Let the original price be x.

The percentage discount on the original price = 100% - 70 % = 30%.

So the amount of reduction or savings in value after discount = $45.

Therefore 30x/100 = 45.

=> x = $(45/30)100 = $150.

Therefore the original price of the jacket = $150.
