Question:

Maria paid $28.00 for a jacket that was discounted by 30%. What was the original price of the jacket?

A $40.00
Explaination

If x represents the original price of the jacket and y represents the discounted amount, then 0.30x = y and x – y = 28; x – 0.30x = 28; 0.70x = 28; x = $2213_w23_h37.png$ = $40.
