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

Cheers,

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

200% more than 60 is 300% of 60, or 3 times 60, which is 3 x 60 = 180.
