A store clerk is preparing an advertisement for store items that are on sale. Items regularly priced at \( \$175\) will be sold for \(\$105\), and items regularly priced at \(\$240\) will be sold for \(\$180\).
Which advertisement accurately describes this sale?

save 25–40%

Explanation

For each item, express the sale price as a percent of the regular price: 105/175= 0.6 and 180/240= 0.75
The discount on the \(\$175\) item is \(40\% (100\% – 60\%)\), and the discount on the \(\$240\) item is \(25\% (100\% – 75\%)\).
