200% of $60 is $120. Therefore Lindsey's table earned $60 + $120 = $180.

Hence option C = $180 is the answer.

Lindsey's table earned 200% more than $60
In other words, the amount Lindsey's table earned = $60 + (200% of $60)
= $60 + $120
= $180

Answer: C

Cheers,
Brent

200% increase is equal to an 300% overall increase. This is similar to saying that 20% increase is an 120% overall increase.
Applying in this problem = 60 * 300% = 60 * (300/100) = 180
