    To get the answer you have to divide the sale price $172.80 by 73%.

    So first you turn 73% into a decimal by moving the decimal two places to the left turning it into. 73

    $172.80 divided by. 73 = $236.71

    You can check by then multiplying $236.71 with. 73

    The sale price is 27% so we multiply 172.80 by 3 to get a total of 518.40 which is 81% of the original cost but now how do we find the other 19%? well 172.80 divided by. 27 gives us 6.40 all we have to do is do the equation 6.40*19 which is 121.60 now we add 518.40 with 121.60 to get 640.00
