Shawna bought a condo.She paid 9500 down payment. If the 9500 down payment is 20% of that price,how much did the condo cost shawna? (Is the answer 47500?)
Junior’s taco stand is offering a promotional 20% discount on the taco burger.If the burgers regularly sell for $1.79,how much will the burgers cost after the sale?

    9500 / 20 = x / 100
    20x = 100 * 9500
    20x = 950,000
    x = 950,000 / 20
    x = $47,500
    1.79 * (1-0.20) = $1.43

    47500 is correct. if 9500 is 20% of something then 9500/x = 20/100
    two ways to do the second problem:
    quick way is 1.79 x .8 = 1.43
    long way is 1.79 – (1.79 x .2) = 1.79 – .36 = 1.43

    9500 = .2P
    P = 9500/0.2 = $47,500
    Discount price = 0.8 * 1.79 = $1.43

    20 9500
    —- = ——-
    100 x 20x = 950000
    x= 47500
