    $48

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Discounted price = list price × (1 - discount rate)

    Let x be the list price.

    40.8 = x \times (1 -15\%) \\ 40.8 = 0.85x \\  \frac{40.8}{0.85}  =  \frac{0.85x}{0.85}  \\ 48 = x

    The list price of the skirt before the discount was \$48

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let

    x------> the list price of the skirt before the discount

    we know that

    15\%=\frac{15}{100} =0.15

    x(1-0.15)=40.80

    solve for x

    0.85x=40.80

    Divide by 0.85 both sides

    0.85x/0.85=40.80/0.85

    x=\$48
