Let the price of generic computer be G & Price of the computer be C & price of wireless router be W
C = G+ \$1000 = 8 W = 8 * G/4 = 2G
G = \$1000
C = \$1000 + \$1000 = \$2000

IMO D

le the price of base model be x
equation formed will be
x+1000 = 2x
or x =1000
thus computer price will be 1000+1000 = 2000
