A. $180
B. $300
C. $320
D. $360
E. $400


Let the original cost be x

So after discount of 25% Amanda pays $240

So x(0.75) = 240

Hence x=320

C

Or Test IT!!!

Let the Cost Price be 320 if she gets 25% discount then it will 240

Hence C

Agree with NandishSS , just want to add:

You can make the arithmetic easier if you change .75 to \(\frac{3}{4}\) (under pressure, I forget too often!).

\($240 =
\frac{3}{4}x\)

\(x =
\frac{4}{3}($240)\)

\(x = $320\)

Answer C

We can let the regular price of the TV = n and create the equation:

0.75n = 240

n = 240/0.75 = 320

Answer: C

75% of the product cost equals 240$.

100% can be calculated as

If 75% = 240 , 25% = 240/3 = 80$
Now 100% = 80$ * 4 = $320

Answer is C - 320$
