The price of allrail tickets increased by 5%.

The price of a rail ticket from London to Ipswich increased by £2.30

Work out the price of the ticket before the increase

 

Explaination please, thanks in advance.

x is the original price of the tickets. 

So, the new price, after the increase of tickets is 1.05x. Since the price of a rail ticket increased by £2.30, we know that £2.30 is 5% of the initial ticket price. 

So the original ticket price is 2.30/0.05=£46
