In the table above is shown the percent reduction in the price of every item in a store off the original price of that item on June 30 of that year. The table is for the 28 days immediately after June 30 of that year. If on July n of that year, Bill bought a suit that originally cost $450, what is the value of n? (1) Bill paid$112.50 less than he would have if he had bought it the day before.

(2) Bill paid $202.50 for the suit.

B - of course is sufficient..$202.50 .. falls under 3rd category BUT i dont know which day in 3rd category.. it can be any from july 15th through 21st...

now for A to be correct there is hint... to see if 55% of 450 - 30% of 450 = 112.50 and i think it is.
so it is the 15th day of july

In the table above is shown the percent reduction in the price of every item in a store off the original price of that item on June 30 of that year. The table is for the 28 days immediately after June 30 of that year. If on July n of that year, Bill bought a suit that originally cost $450, what is the value of n? (1) Bill paid$112.50 less than he would have if he had bought it the day before.

From 2) if Bill paid $202.5 for the suit, you can figure out the week that particular sale price was on, but not the exact date. Hence, eliminate B. If both are true, it is easy to just pick the date which falls within the week from 2). Hence, C is correct. No math is required except 112.5/450 which is easy 25%. Hope this helps you.

(1) Bill paid $112.50 less than he would have if he had bought it the day before. (2) Bill paid$202.50 for the suit.

(1) insuff..because we don't know the discounted price/any price for which he would have paid $112.5. (2)202.5 is what percent less of 450... 450(1-x/100)=202.5 x=55% date "n" could be anything between july15-july21...not suff.... Combining both Bill paid$112.50 less than he would have if he had bought it the day before
means bill paid (202.5+112.5=\$315) if he bought with any previous discount a day before.
315 is 30% less than 450.
So he must bought on july 15
Ans C
