15.95 x .3 = $4.78
15.95 - 4.78 = $11.17
30.95 x .2 = $6.19
30.95 - 6.19 = $24.76
1)$15.95 book, 30% off
15.95 x .3 = $4.78
15.95 - 4.78 = $11.17
2)$30.95 jeans, 20% off
30.95 x .2 = $6.19
30.95 - 6.19 = $24.76
1)The original price is 100% and there is a discount of 30% so the discounted price is 70%
sale price= 70% of 15.95= $11.165
2) sale price of jeans = (100-20)% of $30.95= $24.76
1. $47.85
2.$6.19
"off" means that the original price is decreased by that percentage.
1. $15.95-$15.95(.3) = $11.17
2.$30.95-$30.95(.2) = $24.76
Those are are always estimated to the nearest cents.
15.95 multiplied by .3 = 4.785 (which rounds to 4.79)
Now subtract that from the original number= 15.95-4.79=$11.16
30.95 multiplied by .2= $6.19
Now subtract that from our original price to get the discounted price = $30.95 - $6.19= $24.76
If the question is just to find the sale price after the percentage has been taken off then remember that there are 2 steps to this process first you have to figure out what is the percentage of the original price then subract that from the original price to get the sale price.
I will complete 1 as an example then you should know how to do the second one on your own.
Original price = $15.95
percentage to subtract=30% (30% same as .30)
$15.95 X .30 = 4.79
$15.95 - $4.79 = sale price
sale price = $11.17
