The change in price of a pair of boots marked down by 30% |
Since we aren't told the original prices of the shoes and boots, let's
test some values...
Try: shoes cost
$10, and boots cost
$10050% of
$10 = $5. So, the price is reduced by $5
30% of
$100 = $30. So, the price is reduced by $30
We get:
Quantity A: $5
Quantity B: $30
In this case,
QUANTITY B is greater.
Next, try: shoes cost
$100, and boots cost
$1050% of
$100 = $50. So, the price is reduced by $50
30% of
$10 = $3. So, the price is reduced by $3
We get:
Quantity A: $50
Quantity B: $3
In this case,
QUANTITY A is greater.
Answer: D
