Question:

A
0.88 D

explanation

Compute the price after the 20% decrease in January:

The price decreased by 20%, which means the new price is 100% - 20% = 80% of the original price.

80% of the original price is 0.8 × D = 0.8 D.

Compute the price after the 10% increase in February.

The price increased by 10%, which means the new price is 100% + 10% = 110% of the price after the January decrease.

110% of 0.8 D is 1.1 × 0.8D = 0.88 D.
