Question:

Lisa buys a cell phone that is on sale for {eq}15 \% {/eq} off the original price. The original price is {eq}$180 {/eq} more than the sale price.

What is the original price of the cell phone?

Sale On A Object:

The sale percent on an asset is the discount that is given on the original price, so to know the original price of the asset the relation for the discount percent is taken into consideration.

Answer and Explanation:

Let the original price be x

The sale % is the discount % that is 15%

According to the question

Original price - Sales price = 180

So from the relation of discount % we have

{eq}15=\frac{180}{x}\times 100\\ 15x=18000\\ x=$1200 {/eq}

Therefore the original price will be $ 1200 of the phone.
