After receiving a discount of 12.5% on its bulk order paper, Jon's office supply pays $3200. What was the pri?
So, you're trying to find the original price. Let's call that 'x'.
We can then write the following equation:
3200 = x - x*0.125
In English, that equation basically says that $3200 is the original price minus the discount.
You can now use algebra to isolate the x and find the price of the order before the discount.
(Hint: Factor out the x)
