Mdm P bought a tv set at a discount of 40%. GST(Goods and Services Tax)of 7% was charged for the purchase.She paid a down payment of $433.35 which is 15% of the purchase price, inclusive of GST. What is the original price of the tv set?

I think its:
x*15/100=433,35
15x/100=433,35
multiply by a 100 both sides then you get:
15x=43335
then divide by 15 both sides to get x alone
therefore x=2889 whch is the original price
