On a Saturday night, each of the rooms at a certain motel was rented for either \$40 or \$60. If 10 of the rooms that were rented for \$60 had instead been rented for \$40, then the total rent the motel charged for that night would have been reduced by 25 percent. What was the total rent the motel actually charged for that night ?
(A) \$600
(B) \$800
(C) \$1,000
(D) \$1,600
(E) \$2,400

I agree, B.
\$200 less would have meant 1/4 rent less for the night. So the rent was \$800.

(A) since we are asked to find the total rent the motel actually charged for that night

\$200 is 25% of the total rent the motel would have charged if these 10 of the rooms were actually rented for \$60

Therefore, we have to subtract \$200 (25%) front 800

Bono,

You have it backwards:

Hypothetical: If 10 of the rooms that were rented for \$60 had instead been rented for \$40, then the total rent the motel charged for that night would have been reduced by 25 percent. That figure is \$600

Actual: is \$800
