The  sale price  of the TV = \$600.

It  is said the sale price is after a 20% less than the rgular price.

So the if the regular price  P , then after 20% reduction, the sale price  is P - P(20/100) = P- P/5 = 4P/5.

Therefore 4P/5  should be equal to \$600 sale price.

So 4P/5 = \$600.

Multiplying both sides of the equation by 5 , we get:

(4P/5)*5 = \$600*5.

4P = \$3000.

Divide both sides by 4:

4P/4 = \$3000/4

P = \$750.

Therefore the regular price of the TV = \$750.
