## Answers ( No )

For this case we can make the following rule of three:

12.50 —-> 40%

x ———-> 100%

Clearing x we have:

x = (100/40) * (12.50)

x = $ 31.25 (original price, without the discount)

Therefore, the discounted amount is:

(0.60) * (31.25) = 18.75 $

Answer:The original price of the shorts is:$ 31.25the amount of the discount:$ 18.75
