At the amusement park, Laura paid $6.00 for a small cotton candy. Her older brother works at the park, and he told her they mark up the cotton candy by 300%. Laura does not think that is mathematically possible. Is it possible, and if so, what is the price of the cotton candy before the markup?

    Sure it's possible ... set up the problem by thinking 6 dollars is 300% of what number.

    6 = 300% * x

    6 = 3.00x

    6/3 = x

    2 = x

    Before the markup the cotton candy costs $2.00
