i back solved it by picking numbers from answer choices:
C: 25k total charge
that means 15k will be cash back with 3% or 450 total \$ cash back
on first 10k will be 200 \$ cash back. So total cash back would be 650\$
650/25,000 - 65/2500 divide by 5 = 13/500 multiply by 2 = 26/1000 or 2.6%

Let T be the total spent.

Customer earns \$200 on first \$10k. So, the total cash back equals:

\$200 + .03(T - 10k) = .026T.

\$200 + .03T - 300 = .026T

.03T = .026T + 100

.004T = 100.

T = 25k.
