# Paula bought a ski jacket on sale for $6 less than half its original price She paid $88 for the jacket. What was the original price?

##### 2 Answers

**188$ = P**

#### Explanation:

Considering that the original price was first halved and then subtracted by 6$ to get a value of 88$, you can reverse all the steps made to get 88$. So first, 88$ + 6$, then (88$+6$) * 2 to reverse it from being halved, and your answer is 188$.
