x - total number of bricks

x/4 = 150 ==> x = 600

3x/4 * 0.25 = 0.75*600*0.25 = 450*0.25 = 112.50

Hence option D is correct

3/4 is sold, 1/4 is left which is equal to 150. therefore he sold 450
money collected = 450*0.25 =112.5

option D

E. $150.00



We see that 150 bricks he had left at the end of the day must be 1/4 of all the bricks he had at the beginning of the day. Thus he had 150 x 4 = 600 bricks at the beginning of the day, and, during the day, he sold 3/4 x 600 = 450 bricks. Since each brick is $0.25, he sold a total of 450 x 0.25 = $112.50 worth of bricks.

Answer: D
