    Answer:

    $30

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the price of sweatshirt be $x.

    Discount percentage = 30%

    Discount in dollars = 30% of $x

    Discount in dollars = 30/100 of $x = $ 30x/100

    Given that discount in $ is 9

    thus

    30x/100 = 9

    x = 9*100/30 = 30

    Thus, the original price is $30
