Elita bought a jacket that was on sale for 45% off the original price. If she paid $110 for the jacket when she checked out, what was the original price of the jacket?

Selling price = $110

Discount % = 45% 

Let the original/marked price be x. 

 

⇒x - (45% of x) = 110

⇒x - 45x/100     = 110

⇒100x - 45x      = 11000

⇒55x                 = 11000

⇒x                     = 200

 

Thus, the original price was $200.
