If a car was bought for $600 after a 10% discount, what was the original price of the car?

**Solution**

Suppose,

original price = x

Discount rate = 10%

Discount = 10% of x = 0.10 × x = 0.1x

Sale price = Actual price − Discount = x − 0.1x = 0.9x

Sale price = $600 = 0.9x

x = $666.67

Original price = $666.67
