Yeah the answer is 990. I am pretty sure I have seen this problem and 990 was a choice...

My bad, the answer should be 990. We're asked to calculate the balance, so 1100 -110 = 990

The answer is 990 answer choice B has a typo

10/100P = 110 >> p= 110*100/10 = 1100

1100 - 110 = 990

Since 10% of the price is $110, then the total price is $1,100.

$110 is paid, thus $1,100 - $110 = $990 remains to be paid.

Answer: B.

Hi All,

While this is an older question, and a relatively easy one, it showcases subjects that you WILL have to deal with on Test Day: percents and basic arithmetic. While you can certainly solve this using formal Algebra, sometimes the easiest way to get to the correct answer is to just jot down some notes and do whatever calculations are required.

We're told that a 10% deposit equals $110...so you could write down...

10% of X = 110

Since 10% is an 'easy' percent to deal with, you can immediately calculate the TOTAL price...

X = $1100

Now you have everything that you need to answer the question that was ASKED: How much REMAINS to be paid?

1100 - 110 = 990

Final Answer:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
B


GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
