Problem K. 147. (December 2007)

K. 147. In a sale, a 4\;200\;000-forint (HUF, Hungarian currency) car was sold for 2\;310\;000 forints. In the same sale (that is, with a price reduced by the same percentage), another car was sold for 146\;000 forints less than 3/5 of its original price. What was the original price?

Sorry, the solution is available only in Hungarian. Google translation

Megoldás. A 2 310 000 Ft a 4 200 000 Ft-nak 55%-a, tehát a második autó árának 55%-a 146 000 Ft-tal kevesebb, mint a 60%-a. Ez azt jelenti, hogy az autó eredeti árának 5%-a 146 000 Ft, a teljes ár ennek 20-szorosa, azaz 2 920 000 Ft.
