    My mind isn't with it today.

    Just need to work out.

    If something costs -

    £N

    and i get 40% off.

    The final answer is £20.

    So, what is £N?

    x * 0.6 = 20

    so

    20/0.6 = x

    x = £33.33

    Yup, £20 is 60% of total, so find 1% by dividing by 60 (or 10% deviding by 6) and multiply upto 100%
