Solution

The correct option is A 0.75(13s+1213)
Start with the building for which we know the number of stairs.
The friends are each planning to climb 3639÷3=1213 stairs.
Since 1,213 must be a part of the correct answer, eliminate (B) and (D).
Given that Dalia will complete only 75% of her goal,
Dalia's total must be multiplied by 75% or 0.75. This eliminates (C).
The correct answer is 0.75(13s+1213) (A).
