**Physics**

each bulb is a separate branch of the circuit, and so has the same voltage drop. Since they have the same resistance, each bulb gets a current of 1.5V/6.3Ω = 0.238A Note that 1/Rt = 0.317, so Rt = 3.15 = 6.3/2 Ω

I agree with D, but I'd hardly consider Brazil a smaller country. Its area is bigger than the continental USA, and it has vast natural resources. Granted, a lot of them are in the jungle, and that makes them harder to extract.

after a 30% markup the price is cost * 1.30 After a 15% discount, the price is cost * 1.30 * 0.85 = cost * 1.105 That price is $99, so 1.105 * cost = 99 cost = 99/1.105 = 89.59
