A music store buys instruments and then sells them for 30% more than they paid.

If the price tag on a trumpet says 104, how much did the store pay for it?
(sorry for asking some many questions . . . my teacher isn’t helpful


  1. Answer:
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Hello!  30% of $45 means we must multiply 0.30 and 45.
    $45 x 0.30 = $13.50 is the markup.
    Next, add $13.50 to $45 for a total of $58.50 to get the total amount the store will charge with the markup.
