Two stores sell the same computer for the same original price. Store A advertises that the computer is on sale for 25% off the original price. Store B advertises that it is reducing the computer’s price by $180. When Brittany compares the sale prices of the computer in both stores, she concludes that the sale prices are equal.
Which equation models this situation?
Let p represent the computer’s original price.
A. 0.25p = p – 180
B. 0.75p = p + 180
C. 0.25(p – 180) = p
D. 0.75p = p − 180
