\(\frac{3}{4}\) of the original price is $180. The full price would be \(\frac{180}{3} * 4 = 240. D\)

Sue gets a 25% discount. So she pays 75% on the original amount. .75X=180; x=18000/75=240

We can create the following equation in which n = the original price:

0.75n = 180

n = 180/0.75 = 240

Answer: D
