Need help with price calculation

I have a Retail Price of $165 and give a discount of 66.67% to get a Wholesale Price of $55.
The question is...
How do I calculate the Retail Price
if I am just given the Wholesale Price of $55 and know that the Retail Price x with a discount of 66.67% = $55 (rounded up)

Re: Need help with price calculation

Rounded up how? Solve 55 - r < x(1 - 66.67%) <= 55 where r is the amount of money the Wholesale Price is rounded up to.

To get the retail price, multiply the wholesale price by 3. This assumes the discount is 66 2/3 %. Due to rounding error, the result is approximate (in general).
