How to solve this?

However, the pre-tax price was recently increased by \$2,500 such that 18 cars purchased at the old price would cost the same as purchasing three fewer cars at the new price. If the sales tax rate is 8% , what is the new price of the dealer 's cars, including sales tax, in dollars?

A) \$10,800

B) \$12,500

C) \$13,500

D) \$16,200
