Total revenue from first week = 12x $Average price of 15 pairs for second week = (x-20)$
Total revenue from second week = 15(x-20) $Difference b/w first week revenue and second week = 12x - 15(x-20) = 300-3x Answer: E _________________ +1 Kudos if you find it helpful.

A. 100 – x
B. 200 – 2x
C. 240 – 2x
D. 270 – x
E. 300 – 3x

$$Revenue=Quantity*AveragePrice$$

Week 1: $$Revenue=Quantity*AveragePrice=12*x=12x$$
Week 2: $$Revenue=Quantity*AveragePrice=15*(x-20)=15x-300$$

Difference between Week 1 and Week 2: $$12x-(15x-300)=12x-15x+300=-3x+300=300-3x$$

(E) is the answer.
