The first step is to figure out what the percentage is as a a decimal. Do you know how to do that?

@Zakkdanger your not really supposed to just give the answer. They are supposed to figure it out with your help. Just a warning because they will suspend you

But yes he is right. .375 x 80 = 30, which you would add to 80, because the price increases, which would equal 110
