Weegy: 0.39% is the answer. In this case - take the number laid off (900) - and divide by the total (233,457) This gives you the (decimal) fraction. Multiply the decimal fraction by 100 to determine how many per 100 (the 'percent') so it would 900/233,457 = 0.003855099 times 100 to get the percent. So the answer is 0.385% or 0.39%

Let x be the original price of the shoes,
x + 6.9%x = 67.41
x + 0.069x = 67.41
1.069x = 67.41
x = 67.41/1.069 = 63.06
The original price of the shoes is 63.06
