I am not sure of this but I have that jameka paid the least which is \$24 and Caitlyn paid the most which is \$44?

When we take a percentage off a regular price, we need to subtract that from the regular price.

60 * 0.4 = 24
60 - 24 = 36

You can also subtract 40% from 100% leaving 60% Jameka paid 0.6 * 60 = 36

Now figure out how much Caitlyn paid.
