Thanks in advance!! After a 15% reduction, you purchase a new computer monitor for $246.5. What was the price of the computer monitor before the reduction? Write an equation you can use to answer this question. Use x as your variable and express any percents in decimal form in the equation.
I believe the answer you are looking for is $246.5 times 115% because $246.5 is one hundred percent of the current price and you need to add back the 15% reduction.
