Q:
# Charlotte buys a ticket to go to a baseball game. The total includes a charge of 7% of the original price for extra fees. If Charlotte pays a total of $44.94, how much was the original price of the ticket

Accepted Solution

A:

To solve, turn the percent into a percent decimal and multiply:

7% -------------->(Divide by 100) ---------------------> .07

Then multiply:

44.94 x .07 = 3.15

Subtract that from the total:

44.94 - 3.15 = 41.79

Answer:

Charlotte's original ticket price was $41.79
