    Step-by-step explanation:

    discount = original price * 20%

    final price = original price - discount

    Substituting the equation for discount

    final price = original price - original price*20%

    Factoring out the original price

    final price = original price (1-20%)

    Changing to decimal form and putting the final price

    5.60 = original price (1-.2)

    5.60 = original price (.8)

    Divide by each side by. 8

    5.6/.8 = original price (.8) /.8

    7 = original price
