What is the list price of an item that cost \$725.00 to ship? Answer: List Price = unknown Shipped Item = \$725.00 (List Price) * (5/4) = Shipped Item (List Price) * (5/4) = \$725.00 Multiply each side of the equation by 4/5 (List Price) * (5/4) * (4/5) = \$725.00 * (4/5) (List Price) * (5/5) * (4/4) = \$725.00 * (4/5) (List Price) * (1) * (1) = \$725.00 * (4/5) List Price = \$725.00 * (4/5) List Price = (\$725.00 * 4)/5 List Price = (\$2900.00)/5 List Price = \$580.00 The final answer is: List Price = \$580.00 Thanks for writing.
