An instrument store gives a 10% discount to all students off the original cost of an instrument. During a back to school sale, an additional 15% is taken off the discounted price. Julie, a student at the local high school, purchases a flute for $306. How much did it originally cost?: *
$325
$375
$400
$425
Please explain, thanks
