$400 x 0.1205 = ?? discount.

$400 - discount = cost to customer. The answer isn't listed or there is an error somewhere.

As DrBob said, the right answer is NOT given as one of your choices. Please check the assigned problem again.

If the question is how much money will you pay, the answer will be something over $300.
