Given: 15% of its height each day 27 inches on day 10. How tall was it yesterday? 27 represents 115% of the height yesterday. So we divided 27 by 115% to get yesterdays height. 27 ÷ 115% = 23.48 inches. The plant was 23.48 inches tall yesterday. To check: 23.48 x 15% = 3.52 inches 23.48 + 3.52 = 27 inches
