Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and so we subtract 5.50 from 27.50 27.505.50= 22 so when you get 20% off the ticket the ticket will equal $22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya lol I hope you understand how I got that. There is a simpler method but I only can teach u it if you understand this method correctly and it makes sense in your brain. So work on a few of these problems and when you are comfortable with it I can teach u a method that is only one step

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we would set up our equation like this .45*50=? What is the answer?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0,45*50=22.5 This means that 45% of $50 is $22.50 Now since it is 45% off we have to subtract that amount from the original amount 5022.50=27.50 so The tshirt would cost $27.50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If there is a 20% discount, then you will have to pay 80% of the $27.50 ticket price. 0.8 * 27.50 = $22.00
