£1400

a reduction of 40% means that £840 is 60% of the original price

divide £840 by 60 to find 1% then multiply by 100 to find original price

original price = £840 × [tex]\frac{100}{60}[/tex] = £1400

The answer would be A. 1 1/5

48/40 = 1 8/40

1 8/40 Simplify to 1 1/5

Hope this helps!

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”
