−  Heather compares the price of a new computer at two different stores. Store <math>A</math> offers <math>15\%</math> off the sticker price followed by a <math>\</math><math>90</math> rebate, and store <math>B</math> offers <math>25\%</math> off the same sticker price with no rebate. Heather saves <math>\</math><math>15</math> by buying the computer at store <math>A</math> instead of store <math>B</math>. What is the sticker price of the computer, in dollars?
 
−   
−  <math>\mathrm{(A)}\ 750\qquad\mathrm{(B)}\ 900\qquad\mathrm{(D)}\ 1000\qquad\mathrm{(D)}\ 1050\qquad\mathrm{(E)}\ 1500</math>

−  ==Solution==
 
−  Let the sticker price be <math>x</math>.
 
−   
−  The price of the computer is <math>0.85x90</math> at store <math>A</math>, and <math>0.75x</math> at store <math>B</math>.
 
−   
−  Heather saves <math>\</math><math>15</math> at store <math>A</math>, so <math>0.85x90+15=0.75x</math>.
 
−   
−  Solving, we find <math>x=750</math>, and the thus answer is <math>\mathrm{(A)}</math>.
