The purpose of this task is to engage students in Standard for Mathematical Practice - Model with mathematics. As such, the question as it is worded cannot be answered without making some assumptions. For example, if the items that are purchased do not have the same value, then the price reduction depends on the cost of the items. The answer also depends on how you interpret the meaning of "price reduction" which could be either the absolute reduction or the relative reduction.
