Not 100% but i think the answer might be C.$128

There are two ways to get the answer of 128 -------------------------------------- Method 1 sale price = (original price) - (20% of original price) sale price = 160 - (20% of 160) sale price = 160 - (0.2*160) sale price = 160 - 32 sale price = 128 -------------------------------------- Method 2 Sale price = 80% of original price Sale price = 0.8*(original price) Sale price = 0.8*(160) Sale price = 128 The discount is 20% so the leftover bit (80%) is the sale price
