During the sale, the price of 2 notebooks = 99c.
Normally, the price of 2 notebooks = 118c (59*2)
The difference between the two = 118-99 = 19c.

If a person bought x notebooks, he would save 95c.
19*x= 95
x=5

Actual cost of 2 books = 118 cents (59*2)
sale price of 2 books = 99 cents

therefore saving per book = 118-99/2 = 9.5cents * 10 = 95 cents = 5 pairs of 2 books or 10 books

There seems to be a typo either question should have If a person buys X pairs of these notebooks at the sale price, or there should be 10 in the options
