#### Answer

False.
The statement should read:
"After a 35%, reduction, a computer’s price is $780$ dollars, so its original
price, $x$, can be found by solving $x - 0.35 = 780$$."

#### Work Step by Step

This statement is false because, according to the equation given, it looks like we are just subtracting $35$ cents from the total instead of $0.35$ of the total (or $0.35x$). The original equation is giving us a discount of $35$ cents instead of $35$ percent of the total.
The expression that will give us the true discounted amount of $35$ percent of the total is given as $0.35x$.
The equation should really read:
$$x - 0.35x = 780$$
The entire statement should read:
"After a 35%, reduction, a computer’s price is $780$ dollars, so its original
price, $x$, can be found by solving $x - 0.35 = 780$$."
