Word Problem help
A computer manufacturer reduced the price of its model X computer by 3%. If the new price of the model X computer is $2489, the how much did the computer cost, in dollars, before its price was reduced? (Round to the nearest dollar)
This problem is for extra points, that I really need.
X(.97) = amount the computer cost before the price was reduced.

Answer: $2414.33; rounded to the nearest dollar = $2414
Indeed, misread the question. Thanks, Jacob.
