Two stores sell the same refrigerator for the same original price. Store A advertises that the refrigerator is on sale for 15% off the original price. Store B advertises that it is reducing the refrigerator’s price by $150. When Stephanie compares the sale prices of the refrigerator in both stores, she concludes that the sale prices are equal. Which equation models this situation? Let p represent the refrigerator’s original price. A. 0.85p = p – 150 B. 0.85(p – 150) = p C. 0.15p = p − 150 D. 0.15p = p + 180

    to reduce a number by \(15\%\) mulltply it by \(100\%-15\%=85\%=0.85\)

    to reduce it by a flat \(150\) subtract \(150\) so \[0.85P=P-150\]
