dina bought a file cabinet for 30% off regular price. the store gave her an additional 25% off the sale price. If she paid $63, how much was the original price? :confused:

U can go backwards
63$ was 75%=3/4 of sale price: 63/3=21 & 21*4=84
84$ was 70%=7/10 of reg price: do the same way to find reg price
