Given data

Fox jeans sell for \$15 a pair and Pony jeans sell for \$18 a pair.
Total discount = \$9
So letz take discount % on fox jeans as X and discount % on pony jeans as Y

Also Since 3 pairs of FOX and 2 pairs of pony were sold.
45X + 36Y = 900 ------- 1

Sum of discount % = 22

SO X + Y = 22 ------- 2

Solvng 1 and 2 --- y = 10
