Mr. Maxwell bought new basketball shows with the discount shown. He has a $10-off coupon he can use after the percentage off. If Mr. Maxwell bought the shows for $61.25, what was the original price? A. If the shoes are discounted 25%, what percent of the original price is the original price? 25% discount is the same as 75% of the original price. B. Fill in the boxes to set up the equation to find the original price of the shoes. Original Price =61.25 C. What would be the price without a $10-off coupon?

A. The original price is 100% so if 25% of the price is taken off, then 100%25%=75% of the price remains. Therefore, a 25% discount is the same as 75% of the original price.
B. From part A, we know that he pays 75% of the original price so the first box needs to be filled in with 75. Since he also takes off $10 using the coupon, then 10 needs to go in the second box to represent the price after the coupon. Therefore:
75%⋅ Original Price - 10=61.25
C. The price of $61.25 was the price after both discounts. Since the $10-off coupon was applied last, then the price without the $10-off coupon is the final price of $61.25 plus $10. Therefore:
61.25+10=71.25
The price would then be $71.25 without a $10-off coupon.

Can everything in category theory be restated in a sufficiently expressive type theory?
I've been reading the homotopy type theory (HoTT) book as well as some articles on ncat lab
It seems that HoTT can be interpreted as the syntax for an -groupoid or more generally an ( ,1)-category. That article and related articles on ncatlab seem to suggest that within an arbitrary category C the objects can be translated as types (as in HoTT types) and morphisms can be translated as dependent types. Thus a category can be interpreted as an "abstract data structure" and functors between categories are just ordinary (type theoretic) functions between data types/structures in type theory.
Is that translation correct, and if so, does that suggest that any categorical notion has a simple reformulation (without much work) to a homotopy type theoretic form? Coming from a computational background, for some reason, just replacing the word "category" with "abstract data structure" and a few other terms in category theory with type theoretic terminology seems to make category theory much more intuitive than it appears.
