At her store, Stella sells clothing for 60% more than she paid. During a weekend sale, Stella sold clothing for 12.5% off what she would normally charge. Her revenues, including the 6% Florida sales tax, totaled $29,680. How much did Stella pay, in dollars, for clothing sold that weekend?

Normally sells them at 160%
Sells them this weekend at 140%
Revenue = 134%
Amount she paid x 1.34 = 29680
INewton, the way thats phrased do you take it as she had to pay an additional 6% to florida tax or thats not calculated into net gains? and its 12.5% so itd be 147.5% not 140 even wouldnt it?
The first part I was testing you.
The second part I don't know, it depends how you read it I guess. Reading it back I think she got an extra 6%, not had to pay the tax. Oh well, I'll stick yo real maths. ****.
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
I really just did it to post before you ¬_¬
i figured, i saw you join the thread. im not here to screw with you though im here to give math help and maybe learn something. so, garrett thats a trickey one because im not sure how they are trying to phrase it, that 6% at the end could either mean she paid 6% more or 6% less off the total. based on the wording im not totally sure what they are asking
Yeah its pretty strange
Wow, what the **** was I thinking. It takes away 12.5% of what she normally sells at .. which means it's 87.5% of the 160% = 140%.
I am an idiot, I should have listened to myself, as I am always right.
The simply taking away 6 and not multiplying by .94 was my mistake.
So yes, depending on what it means, it's either:
140% * 94% = of what she paid
140% * 106% of what she paid.
"off what she would normally charge" good catch so yeah that 12.5% off the 60%
