By clue 1, the original prices of the five gifts ranged from $30120. By
clue 2, the sale prices ranged from $2136. By clue 7, the percents off
the five gifts ranged from 3070%. The difference between the gift selling
for $30 originally and $21 on sale is $9, or 30% off; these must be the
original and sale prices of one gift, since a more than 30% reduction on
$30 would result in a final price less than $21. Similarly, the difference
between the gift selling for $120 originally and $36 on sale is $84, or 70%
off; these must be the original and sale prices of another gift, since a
less than 70% reduction on $120 would result in a final price more than $36.
So, we have prices of two of the five gifts. By clue 3, the gift Jada
bought received a 20% greater discount than the tie and ended up costing
$4 than the tie. By clue 3, the tie couldn't have the $12036 price range
or Jada's gift would have cost $40 on sale, no (2). So, either the tie
would have the $3021 range or would be a third gift. Trying the tie as
selling for $30 originally and $21 on sale, by clue 3, Jada's buy would have
been for $25 on sale with a 50% reduction, so her gift would have cost $50 full
price. By clue 4, Lynne's gift cost $50 more originally and $8 more on sale
than the gloves. Lynne's gift would have cost the $12036 or would be
a fourth gift to the three named. If Lynne's gift were $120 original
and $36 sale price, the gloves would have cost $70 and $28 full and sale
price. Adding the four original and four sale prices, we would have $270
and $110so the fifth gift would have cost $40 original price (by clue 1,
the sum of original prices is $310) and $24 on sale (by clue 2, the sum of
sale prices is $134). By clue 5, Maria saved $7 more on her gift than the
girl who bought the belt saved on hers; there is no way for this clue to
work in our arrangement. If Lynne's gift were the fourth one, the gloves
couldn't have cost $120 originally or Lynne's gift would have cost $170
(4). If the gloves were Jada's gift, Lynne's gift would have cost $100
full price (4)a total of $300 for the four gifts and leaving only $10
for the fifth, no (1). So, the gloves would be a fifth gift. By clues
1 and 4, then, Lynne's gift would have cost $80 and the gloves $30 full
price and $30 and $22 on sale. However, the $8 reduction on the gloves
would be less than 30%, contradicting clue 7. Therefore, the tie did
not have the $3021 price range and is the third gift. Jada's gift doesn't
have the $3021 price range or the tie would have cost $17 on sale (3).
If Jada's gift had the $12036, the tie would have cost $32 on sale with
50% off the original price (3) of $64. By clue 4, Lynne's gift couldn't
then be the $3021 one or the tie, or the gloves would have cost less
than $30 originally; Lynne's gift would be a fourth gift. The gloves
couldn't be Jada's gift, or Lynne's would have cost $170 originally (4).
If the gloves had the $3021 range, Lynne's gift would have sold for $80
originally and $29 on sale (4). Summing, the four original prices would
have totaled $294, leaving $16 (1) for the fifth gift. So, the gloves would
be the fifth gift. Summing the three gifts, we would have $214 originally,
leaving $96 (1) for Lynne's gift and the gloves. Lynne's gift would have
cost $73 and the gloves $23, no (1). Therefore, Jada's gift is the fourth
one. By clue 4, Lynne's gift is either the tie, the fifth one, or the one
with the $12036 range. If it were the tie, the least it could have cost
on sale would be $29 (2, 4), so that the least Jada's gift could have cost
would be $33 (3). Summing, the four sale prices would be at least $119,
leaving $15 (2) for the fifth gift, no (2). If Lynne's gift were the fifth
one, the gloves couldn't have the $12036 range (4, 1). If the gloves were
Jada's gift, the least the tie could have cost on sale is $21 (2), so
that Jada's gift would have cost at least $25 (3) and Lynne's $33 (4)a
total of $136, no (2). If the gloves had the $3021 range, Lynne's gift
would have cost $80 originally and $29 on sale. The three sale prices
would total $86, leaving $48 for Jada's gift and the tie (2), which would
have cost $26 and $22 respectively (3). Jada would have bought the dress
shirt and Nicole the tie (6). However, by clue 5, Maria couldn't have bought
the item with the $3021 range or either the tie or Jada's gift would have
been marked down $2, less than the 30% minimum (7); nor could Maria have
bought the item in the $12036 range, a savings of $84, or the tie or Jada's
gift would have been marked down $77, making the original price too high.
Therefore, Lynne's gift sold for $120 originally and $36 on sale. The gloves
would have cost $70 full price and $28 on sale (4). If the gloves were the
fifth gift, summing the sale prices would give $85, leaving $49 for Jada's gift
and the tie, which would then have cost $26.50 and $22.50 respectively (3).
By clue 6, Jada would have bought the dress shirt and Nicole the tie. However,
by clue 5, Maria couldn't have bought the item with the $3021 range or either
the tie or Jada's gift would have been marked down $2, less than the 30% minimum
(7); nor could Maria have bought the item in the $12036 range, a savings of $84,
or the tie or Jada's gift would have been marked down $77, making the original
price too high. So, Jada bought the gloves for $28 after a $42, or 60%,
reduction from $70. Then the tie cost $24 on sale after a 40% reduction (3), so
it was originally $40. Summing, the original prices total $260 and the sale
prices $109, making the fifth gift cost $50 full price (1) and $25 on sale (2).
By clue 5, Maria bought the tie, and the belt had the $3021 range. By clue 6,
the dress shirt had the $5025 and Nicole's gift the $3021 range. By elimination,
Kelly bought her dad a dress shirt and Lynne hers a sweater. In sum, the great sale
buys were as follows:
 Lynne, sweater, $120  $36
 Jada, gloves, $70  $28
 Kelly, dress shirt, $50  $25
 Maria, tie, $40  $24
 Nicole, belt, $30  $21
