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 Intern Joined: 17 Jul 2003 Posts: 34 Location: New York Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 0 [0], given: 0 [#permalink] 25 Aug 2003, 17:15 I agree, B.$200 less would have meant 1/4 rent less for the night. So the rent was $800.

Bono,

You have it backwards:

Hypothetical: 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. That figure is $600 Actual: is$800
