The price of a shirt is increased by 12 dollars. Due to this, the price increases by 9%. How much do you have to pay for the shirt after this price increase?

$12 represents  9 % of  $ x              where x = original price

 

9% * x = 12

.09x=12

x = 12/.09 = $ 133                   then the price increases 12 dollars  = 145 dollars price
