Answer:$937

Step-by-step explanation:P(1-20/100)=750- 1 is the object the you take away the percentage that is in

fraction form

P(1-.2)=75-take it from fraction form to decimal form

P(.8)=750-this is the final product of the equation above

750/.8-Take the current price and the decimal and divide

75000/80- take the .8 and add two 0’s to get the whole accurate amount

937.5-Price before the price fell

Sorry I’m not the best at explaining things hoped this helped!
