the answer is vanilla

step-by-step explanation:

question:

could we have options?

I believe the answer is $2125 after double checking my skills with a scientific calculator

We need to write an expression to solve this problem. We do as follows:

(1 - .85)x = 75

x = 75 / (1-.85)

x = 75 / .15

x = 500

Therefore, the original price of the machine would be 500. Hope this answers the question. Have a nice day.
