    Answer:

      $356.00

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If d represents the discounted price, and p is the original price, you have …

      d = p – 20% × p = p(1 -20%) = 0.80p

    Then the original price is …

      p = d/0.80 . . . . . divide by the coefficient of p

      p = $284.80/0.80 = $356.00

    The price before the discount was $356.00.
