    Answer: original price b4 30% discount was $120

    If at 30% discount, baseball glove is $84

    It means 70% = 84

    100% = x

    70x = 8400

    x = 120

    the the original price be x

    x  -  \frac{30}{100} x = 84 \\  \frac{100x - 30x}{100}  = 84 \\ 70x = 8400 \\ x =  \frac{8400}{70}  \\ x = 120

    so the original price was $120
