$600

step-by-step explanation:

100% represents the original price of the machine, then

60% reduction = 100 – 60 = 40% of the original price

divide $240 by 40 to find 1%, then multiply by 100

original price = [tex]\frac{240}{40}[/tex] × 100 = $600

The answer would be A. 1 1/5

48/40 = 1 8/40

1 8/40 Simplify to 1 1/5

I believe it is 60-10=x because it says she purchased it with 60$ but recieved 10$ in change causing the amount we dont know to be a variable such as “x”
