24% = 115.20

1% = 115.20/24

100% = 115.20 x100/24

Original price is 480

But to make it easier for you to get a grasp on it. 24% is almost 25%, which is a quarter. So the original price will be higher than 4 times 115,20. This if you would have arrived at an answer less than 460 had you calculated it on your own, you would have realised that the answer could never be correct.

Pretty sure Lon cleared this up for me, and you’re making it more obvious than it already was?

What does it matter ? It is on sale. {No math skills means no high paying job.} P S What WAS the original price? {English skills matter. too.}

If you can't figure it out, just pay what they are asking.
