A. 10(p + 1) B. 10(p - 1) C. 10($$p^2$$ + p) D. 10($$p^2$$ - p) E. 10($$p^2$$ + p + 1) GMAT Tutor Status: Tutor - BrushMyQuant Joined: 05 Apr 2011 Posts: 620 Location: India Concentration: Finance, Marketing Schools: XLRI (A) GMAT 1: 700 Q51 V31 GPA: 3 WE: Information Technology (Computer Software) Re: Bracelets cost p dollars each at a discount store.

Total Money: $x Total Pieces which we can buy =$x / $p = x/p Retail Chain Store Price per piece:$(p+1)
Total Money: $x Total Pieces which we can buy =$x / $(p+1) = x/(p+1) Given: At discount store we can buy 10 bracelets more as compared to retail store in$x money
=> x/p = x/(p+1) + 10
multiply both sides with p and (p+1) we get
x(p+1) = xp + 10p*(p+1)
x(p+1-p) = 10p(p+1)
x = 10(p^2 + p)

Hope it helps!
