IMO answer is C

30% =60
ie 100%=200
so 200-20%
==200-40=160

let price be x

so
1.3x= x+60
x= 60/.3
x= 200
now 20% discount would mean ; 200 * .8 = $160
IMO C

We can let the original price = p and create the equation:

1.3p = p + 60

0.3p = 60

p = 60/0.3 = 600/3 = 200

If that shirt were decreased by 20%, the price would be:

200 x 4/5 = 40 x 4 = 160

Answer: C
