On a Saturday night, each of the rooms at a certain motel was rented for either $40 or $60. If 10 of the rooms that were rented for $60 had instead been rented for $40, then the total rent the motel charged for that night would have been reduced by 25 percent. What was the total rent the motel actually charged for that night ?
(A) $600
(B) $800
(C) $1,000
(D) $1,600
(E) $2,400



My pick is B

Well, if 10 rooms were charged $40 instead of $60, the total rent saved = $200.
Total rent was reduced by 25% = $200. So Previous rent was 200*4 = 800.
So B.
