There are 120 televisions on display at an electronics

store. The number of televisions displaying sports programs

is 50% less than 4 times the number of televisions

displaying educational programs. 1/4 of the televisions are

displaying neither sports programs nor educational programs.

If all of the 120 televisions are displaying programs, how

many televisions are displaying sports programs?

A. 30

B. 24

C. 45

D. 40

E. 60

Solving for this directly gives us 60 TVs showing sports. But what scares me is the part in bold.

but again solving for the numbers also gives 60 as the answer.
