Hello everyone, this is my scribe post about what we did today.
FIRST, bob and sam both wanted to buy boots. bob goes to one shop sam goes to another shop.
At the shop bob went to ( Shop A ) they were selling the boots for $200 and they had a sale of 50% off.
At the shop sam went to ( Shop B ) they were selling
the boots for $200 dollars also and had a sale of Day 1 30% off and Day 2 save 20% off day 1 price.
ARE THEY THE SAME PRICE? IS SHOP A, A BETTER DEAL?OR IS SHOP B A BETTER DEAL?
Lets find out!
At Shop A
Boots Cost 200$ 50% off
100% = $200
At shop A the boots cost 100$
AT shop B
Boots cost 200$ with a Day one 30% off and Day two 20% off sale.
Day 1- 100% = $200
10% = $20
Times ten percent by 3 for 30 percent
At shop B boots cost 112$
So now we have a answer to our question, are they the same price?
NO, Shop A sells for $100 and shop B sells for $112
SECOND, Bob and sam want new socks, they go to different shops again. At shop bob goes to ( Shop A ) the socks sell for $50 and there is a sale for 25% off.
At the shop bob goes to ( Shop B ) the socks are selling for $50 dollars and there is a sale on that says Day 1 5% off and Day 2 20% Off
ARE THEY THE SAME? IS SHOP A, A BETTER DEAL? OR IS SHOP B A BETTER DEAL?
At shop A
Socks are $50 and 25% off
to find 25% off i did. 100%=$50
then 50%=25 then 25%=$12.50
I kept dividing by 2
Then i did $50-$12.50= 37.50
At Shop B
Day 1 i did 50x0.005=2.50
Day 2 i did 47.50x0.2=9.50
