The Question: In a local shop some items are being sold at a third off. They now cost the following amounts. What was the original full price?

1.£6.46
2.£58.24
3.£114.28
4.£12.50
5.£10.86

Answer: 1) 9.69
2) 87.36
3) 171.42
4) 18.75
5) 16.29

Step-by-step explanation:
Treat each value’s full price as x. then, all of the values are (2/3)x. To get (2/3)x back to x, we must multiply (2/3)x*(3/2)=x. Multiply each of the questions given by 3/2 or 1.5
