Charmaine bought a pair of shoes at a 30% discount and paid $22.50 less than the original price. What was the original price of the pair of shoes?

A. $60
B. $68
C. $72
D. $75
E. $81

Let original price be = x
Price after 30% discount = 70% of x = x - $22.50
0.7x = x - 22.50
0.3x = 22.50
x = \(\frac{22.50}{0.3}\) = $75
Answer D...

Original Price = \(\frac{22.50}{30}*100\)

Original Price = \(75\)

Thus, answer must be (D) $ 75

We can let p = the original price of the pair of shoes and create the equation:

0.7p = p - 22.5

22.5 = 0.3p

p = 22.5/0.3 = 225/3 = 75

Answer: D
