### Suzzene's scribe post

*Taxes not included.

1st Question:
Store A:
Skates = \$200
50% Off.

Store B:
Skates = \$200
Day 1- 30% Off.
Day 2- 20% Off.

Finding the total price for Store A:
For finding how much the sale price is for Store A, I would first find the discount. I'd find the answer by doing the decimal way.

50/100 = 0.50
0.50 x 200= 100

Then, I would subtract the original price to the discount.
200 - 100= \$100

Therefore, in Store A, you would have to pay \$100.

Finding the total price for Store B:
Like in Store A, I would first find the discount.

30/100= 0.30
0.30 x 200= 60

Then subtract it with the Original Price again.
200-60= \$140

On the first day, you'd get the skates for \$140 dollars. If you go the second day, to find how much it is, you have to do the whole process all over again except, you have a new 100%. Instead of 200, it will be 140.

20/100= 0.20
0.20 x 140= 28

Lastly, subtract once more.
140-28= \$112

In the end, it shows that you can save more, (\$12) if you buy at Store A instead of Store B.

2nd Question:
Store C:
Boots = \$270
40% Off.

Store D:
Boots = \$270
Day 1- 30% Off.
Day 2- 10% Off.

Finding the total price for Store C:
Re-do the whole process done in the 1st question.

As a reminder, first, you must find the discount.
40/100= 0.40
0.40 x 270= \$108

Then, subtract original price with discount.
270-108= \$162.

Therefore, if you bought in Store C, you would get the boots for \$162.

Finding the total price for Store D:
Find the discount first.
30/100= 0.3
0.3 x 270= \$81

Subtract Original Price with discount.
270 - 81= \$189

If you bought the boots on the first day, you would buy it for \$189. If you bought it on the second day...

Finding the discount:
10/100= 0.10
0.10 x 189= \$18.90

Subtracting the discount from the Day 1 price, it would be \$170.10
189- 18.90= \$170.10

Therefore, you would save more money if you bought it at Store C instead of Store D.

If you are kind of confused, here's a video that may help you.:

Here is also a game about discounts and such.

Good Luck and Have fun!

P.S., due to Rose's suggestion, I decided to put the homework.

Remember, don't forget to do pages 148-151 in mytextbook.ca, or at least, some of them! :)

Hi Suzzene! I really liked your scribe post, because you explained everything so clearly. I also liked how you had different kind of colors in your post. Your post was also well organized and it helped me a lot. Mentioning the homework pages will helped everyone do their homework, so good job! What I need to suggest to make your scribe post even better is that you should put pictures on each of your questions so that everyone would understand it better.
