ok good

- anonymous

So it is basically 20% off 27.50 Do u remember how we wld set up the equation?

- anonymous

LOL now that I am reading it I am realizing that it is different than yesterday

- anonymous

.20=n27.50

- anonymous

uhhhh no

- anonymous

It is different than yesterday

- anonymous

ok so i dont know how you learnt it but I will show you both ways

- anonymous

why just one way

- anonymous

ok so basically we are asking what is 20% of 27.50
27.50*.20=5.5

- anonymous

so we see that 20% of 27.50 is equal to 5.50

- anonymous

did you follow?

- anonymous

so we are saying 20% of the amount the ticket would cost id $5.50

- anonymous

*is

- anonymous

=

- anonymous

no I am just correcting what i wrote b4 :D

- anonymous

ok so now our equation says 20% off of 27.50

- anonymous

so meaning that we have to remove the 20% from 27.50

- anonymous

so basically the 20% of 27.50 = 5.50

- anonymous

and so we subtract 5.50 from 27.50
27.50-5.50= 22
so when you get 20% off the ticket the ticket will equal $22

- anonymous

LOL i tried to be clear but i doubt it

- anonymous

Star how old are you?

- anonymous

u dont wanna know

- anonymous

LOL ok but what didnt u understand

- anonymous

Star?

- anonymous

i understand the answer is 22 right?

- anonymous

ya 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

Lets take another example. A t-shirt costs $50 dollars. There is a sale and everything in the store is 45% off? What would the price of the t-shirt be?

- anonymous

55

- anonymous

So basically we would like to know what 45% of $50 is

- anonymous

so we would set up our equation like this .45*50=?
What is the answer?

- anonymous

2250

- anonymous

,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
50-22.50=27.50
so The t-shirt would cost $27.50

- anonymous

sorry i didnt see that star but ya 22.50 is the correct answer :D

- anonymous

If there is a 20% discount, then you will have to pay 80% of the $27.50 ticket price.
0.8 * 27.50 = $22.00
