$[asy] draw((0,0)--(36,0)--(36,24)--(0,24)--cycle); draw((0,4)--(36,4)); draw((0,8)--(36,8)); draw((0,12)--(36,12)); draw((0,16)--(36,16)); draw((0,20)--(36,20)); fill((4,0)--(8,0)--(8,20)--(4,20)--cycle, black); fill((12,0)--(16,0)--(16,12)--(12,12)--cycle, black); fill((20,0)--(24,0)--(24,8)--(20,8)--cycle, black); fill((28,0)--(32,0)--(32,24)--(28,24)--cycle, black); label("120", (0,24), W); label("80", (0,16), W); label("40", (0,8), W); label("Jan", (6,0), S); label("Feb", (14,0), S); label("Mar", (22,0), S); label("Apr", (30,0), S); [/asy]$

$\textbf{(A)}\ 60\qquad\textbf{(B)}\ 70\qquad\textbf{(C)}\ 75\qquad\textbf{(D)}\ 80\qquad\textbf{(E)}\ 85$

## Solution

There are a total of $100+60+40+120=320$ dollars of sales spread through $4$ months, for an average of $320/4 = \boxed{\textbf{(D)}\ 80}$.
