85% or the original price equals 111.

0.85(OP) = 111

Original Price = 111/0.85 = 130.59

Not a math person by any stretch of the imagination, but to solve for existing percentages, you divide the amount paid (i.e. $111) and the Percentage (i.e. .85) which gives you a Full Price of $130.58. Rounded up, it is $131. Here is the formula:

** Amount Paid** ($111) /

If you want to check your work, here is what you can do:

** Original Price** ($130.58) X

Cheers!
