A soccer store typically sells replica jerseys at a discount of 30 percent to 50 percent off list price. During the annual summer sale, everything in the store is an additional 20 percent off the original list price. If a replica jersey's list price is $80, approximately what percent of the list price is the lowest possible sale price?
A. 20
B. 25
C. 30
D. 40
E. 50
Let the list price be 2x
for min sale price, the first discount given should be 50%, 2x becomes x here
now, during summer sale additional 20% off is given ie sale price becomes 0.8x
it is given lise price is $80
=> 2x = 80
=> x = 40
and 0.8x = 32
so lowest sale price is 32, which is 40% of 80
hence, D is the answer
