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 ?

[#permalink] 07 Oct 2009, 20:02 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.
