Today in class we reviewed finding percent discount and moved on to work on mark up and mark down. Surprise - it's the same process. Find the percent and add for mark up or subtract for mark down.
Homework: The Birthday Percent project is due tomorrow.
Please solve The Bargain Store problems on the Percent of Change page. You must take each discount BEFORE taking another discount. So if you take 50% off of $100, plus an additional 25% off, you start by taking 50% of $100 which is $50. Now you take 25% off of that $50 which is $12.50. Your total discount is $100 - $50 -$12.50 = $37.50 you new total for the item you are purchasing.
