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.
