A bookstore sells used books at a 40% discount off the regular price of the book when it was new. The price of a used book is $16. What was the regular price of that book when it was new

40 % off means the price is 60% of original

 

.6 x = 16

x = 16/(.6) = $.........

1-0.4=0.6

 

then it becomes the equation 0.6x=16

 

divide both sides by 0.6 to get $26.67
