    Question is incomplete, complete question is given below;

    A sporting goods store manager was selling a ski set for a certain price. The manager offered the markdowns​ shown, making the​ one-day sale price of the ski set ​$325. Find the original selling price of the ski set. It was marked down 10% and 30%

    Answer:

    The original selling price would be approximately $ 515.87.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let x be the original selling price ( in dollars ),

    After marking down 10%,

    New selling price = x - 10\% \ of \ x = x - 0.1x = 0.9x

    Again after marking down 30%,

    \textrm{Final selling price} = 0.9x - 30\% \ of \ 0.9x\\

    \textrm{Final selling price}= 0.9x - 0.3 \times 0.9x\\\textrm{Final selling price}= 0.9x - 0.27x\\\textrm{Final selling price}= 0.63x

    According to the question,

    0.63x = 325\\\\x=\frac{325}{0.63}\\\\x\approx \$515.87

    Hence,the original selling price would be approximately $ 515.87.
