Car dealer paid a certain price for a car and marked it up by 7/5 and sold the car for 24,000 dollars what was the original price?

me assume that junk shood be

x+(7/5)x=24,000

or (12/5)x=24,000

so x=24,000/(12/5)....=(5/12)*24,000

=5*2,000

=10,000

If x was the price the dealer paid for the car, the markup price would be 7x/5 or 1.4x. So 1.4x=24000, and x=24000/1.4=\$17142.86. Call it \$17,143 to the nearest dollar.

If he added 7x/5 to the original price to make a profit of 1.4x, then x+1.4x=2.4x=24000 and x=24000/2.4=\$10,000. (His profit would then be \$14,000. Pretty good, eh? I wonder if he really managed to sell the car!)

x+(x×7/5)=24000
12x/5=24000
12x=24000*5
12x=120000
x=120000/12
x=10000
