Asking price = 115% * $750 = $862.5

Letting P = the amount of profit he will make and R = the total price he will sell the television for, we can create the equation:

P = 0.15(750)

R - 750 = 0.15(750)

R - 750 = 112.5

R = 862.50

Alternate Solution:

He should sell the television for 750 x 1.15 = 862.50 dollars.

Answer: D
