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 _________________ Brainless Intern Joined: 19 Jun 2009 Posts: 29 Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 96 [0], given: 1 Re: Aps_can : Please post your questions in a new thread !!

Total rent was reduced by 25% = \$200. So Previous rent was 200*4 = 800.
So B.
