on my way to work in a suit and a tieAhhhh...come on fucking guyRegistered User regular

Good morning H/A,

I have these values that have been discounted 35% of x and I need to find x. I haven't had my coffee yet and just thought of this approach in the shower. It's a good approach, but every way I look at the actual math in the fog of morning, I just can't crack it.

plz halp.

see below.

FuzzywhaleonMaybe? If that's the case you're going to take your discounted value (which is actually equal to 65% of the original price, since it's discounted by 35%) and divide it by that percentage, so 65/.65 says that original cost (x) is $100.

This would look like

values=.65x, where your values are already discounted by 35%.Not sure if that's what you were looking for, hopefully it helped some.

Edited for bad grammar. It's a math thread, but that's no excusemilehighonxby (100% - 35%), so to undo that you reverse the operation.x* (1 - .35) = <your value>x= <your value> / (1 - .35)FunkyWaltDoggonThank you very much everyone. I should probably be ashamed of myself.

Please lock.
