    Dealer B has the lowest price $15,360.

    The working:
    Dealer A's Price:
    After rebate price = List Price - $1,200 = 18,000 - 1,200 = $ 16,800.
    8% discount * after rebate price = 8%*$16,800 = $1,344
    Net price = $16,800 - $1,344 = $15,456

    Dealer B's Price:
    (100% List price - 8% of list price) - $1,200 =
    (92% of list price) - $1,200 = (92%*18,000) - $1,200 = 16,560 - 1,200 = $15,360
