Answer:

The original price of microwave was #$350#

Explanation:

Let Marissa bought microwave in #$x# as discounted price.

The tax is #x*7/100= $14.70 :. x= (100*14.70)/7=$210#

Say the original price is #$y:. y *(100-40)/100=210# or

#y=(210*100)/60= $350#

The original price of microwave was #$350# [Ans]
