Explanation

Let the original price be P.

The original price (P) minus 30% of the original price (P) equals the discounted price.

P – 30% of P = $105

\(P - 0.30(P) = 105\)

\(0.70(P) = 105\)

\(P = 150\)

Hence option D is correct.

If we let n = the original price of the calculator, we see that 0.7n is the discounted price. We can create the equation:

0.7n = 105

n = 105/0.7 = 150

Answer: D
