A shipping company charges 5/4 of the list price for a shipped item. 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
