A clothing store is having a sale. All items are on sale for 35% off the original price. Create an equation in terms of p, the original price of an item, to show the sale price of an item before any sales tax.


  1. Answer:
    P ÷ 35% = X
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Because P is the original answer, it needs to be divided by 35% because it 35% off, so it would equal X, the original item price discounted.
    Hope this helps!
