The original price of the grill was 200 dollars.
Work Step by Step
Let p represent the original price of the grill. We can use the basic discount guideline to set up an algebraic equation. Original selling price - Discount = Discount sale price Original selling price = p Discount = 30% $\times$ p = 0.3p Discount sale price = 140 So, p - 0.3p = 140 0.7p = 140 Divide both sides by 0.7. p = 200 The original price of the grill was 200 dollars.
