The original price of the digital camera was 350 dollars.

#### Work Step by Step

Let p represent the original price of the digital camera. 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 = 245 We substitute these values into the above equation to obtain: p - 0.3p = 245 0.7p = 245 Divide both sides by 0.7. p = 350 The original price of the digital camera was 350 dollars.
