    217 divided by 0.38= $571.052blahblahblah so $571.05

  2. Unformed says:

    Let ‘x’ be the original price
    x – (38% of x) = 217
    x – 0.38x = 217
    0.62x = 217 —> x = $350 <--- Price yesterday

    let x = the price it was yesterday (non-sale price)
    x * .38x = 217
    .62x = 217
    x = 350 <======this is the price it was yesterday check: 350 * .38 = 133 <========this is the discount amount 350 - 133 = 217 <=====sale price today
