The store owner gave a 35 percent discount, yet they still had to pay $247 dollars for the camera. What was the orginal price of the camera?

Let the original price of the camera =C, then:

C - [35% x C] = $247

C - 0.35C = $247

0.65C = $247 divide both sides by 0.65

C =247 / 0.65

**C = $380.00 - original price of the camera**.
