An item is discounted by 15% from its usual selling price. What is the usual selling price?

(1) The dollar value of the discount is $45. (2) The discounted price is$255.

Statement 1: Discount is $$15$$ , if usual selling price is $$100$$. $$45$$ discount corresponds to usual selling price of $$= \frac{100*45}{15}$$. Sufficient

Statement 2: Discounted price is $$100-15=85$$ , if usual selling price is $$100$$. $$255$$ discounted price corresponds to usual selling price of $$= \frac{100*255}{85}$$. Sufficient
