The price of each item at the Dorf Gadget Store has been reduced by 20% from its original price. An MP3 player has a sale price of $112. What would the same MP3 player sell for if it was on sale for 30% off of its original price?

$$\frac{80}{100}x=112\\ 80x=11200\\ x=140$$

Its original cost is $140. 30% off would leave 70% of$140$, which is $$\frac{7}{10}\cdot140\\ =98$$ Therefore the MP3 player would be$98.
