### Aaron's Scribe Post

Aaron Sawbo December 8, 2011

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

50%= %100

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

30%= \$60

200-60=\$140

<< 0.8x140=\$112

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
50-2.50=47.50

Day 2 i did 47.50x0.2=9.50
47.50-9.50=\$38

. ITS LATE, IM TIRED THANKS FOR READING MY SCRIBE BYE!

1. Good job Aaron! Next time you should make your pictures more clear and neat. They are pretty messy! Sorry. Add more color next time. Don't use yellow, i couldn't read it that well! But over all great job! Keep it up!

2. Aaron, great post! I liked the way you showed all your work and explained it. You can improve this post by adding a link. Here are two links you can choose http://www.teacherschoice.com.au/Maths_Library/Money/discount.htm

3. Great job Aaron! I really liked how you explained your answers by using pictures what a good idea but the colors you used were kind've bright so it was hard for me to read it (like sheila said). But you still did use colors which was good. 2 suggestions I have is that you should've added a link and the second one was you should've added a video but otherwise great job!

4. Good job Aaron! I really liked how you explained your answers by using pictures but like sheila and alyshia said the colors you used were kind of bright and a bit messy so it was hard for me to read it. you should of also added a video and a link to help people out even more if they didnt understand it that well, but other that that good job!

5. Great job Aaron! I really liked how you added pictures to your scribe post. But, they were little hard to read. Next time, you should change the font colour and if you type it instead of writing it, it could look more neat. I noticed that you didn't have a link or video so here is a link and a video that you might want to use:
