If you go to the store and want to buy 2 each of badminton tennis rackets, the clerk tells you the price is $240.

You changed your mind and add one more tennis racket, and the clerk says, "that'll be $300."

How much is a tennis racket?

Sorry, it's not clear what happened.

Another possibility is typo in the question or the teacher does not have the same question as yours.
