    Answer:

    Cost price = $300

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the cost price be = x

    Discount % = 5%

    Price after discount = $285

    Find Cost price .

     Price \ after \  discount = x - (5 \%  \ of \ x)\\\\285 = x - \frac{5}{100}x\\\\285 = \frac{100 - 5 }{100} x\\\\95x = 285 \times 100\\\\x = \frac{28500}{95} = \$ 300
