ok good

So it is basically 20% off 27.50 Do u remember how we wld set up the equation?
anonymous
  • anonymous
LOL now that I am reading it I am realizing that it is different than yesterday
anonymous
  • anonymous
.20=n27.50
anonymous
  • anonymous
uhhhh no
anonymous
  • anonymous
It is different than yesterday
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so i dont know how you learnt it but I will show you both ways
anonymous
  • anonymous
why just one way
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so basically we are asking what is 20% of 27.50 27.50*.20=5.5
anonymous
  • anonymous
so we see that 20% of 27.50 is equal to 5.50
anonymous
  • anonymous
did you follow?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so we are saying 20% of the amount the ticket would cost id $5.50
anonymous
  • anonymous
*is
anonymous
  • anonymous
=
anonymous
  • anonymous
no I am just correcting what i wrote b4 :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so now our equation says 20% off of 27.50
anonymous
  • anonymous
so meaning that we have to remove the 20% from 27.50
anonymous
  • anonymous
so basically the 20% of 27.50 = 5.50
anonymous
  • 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
  • anonymous
LOL i tried to be clear but i doubt it
anonymous
  • anonymous
Star how old are you?
anonymous
  • anonymous
u dont wanna know
anonymous
  • anonymous
LOL ok but what didnt u understand
anonymous
  • anonymous
Star?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i understand the answer is 22 right?
anonymous
  • 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
  • anonymous
55
anonymous
  • anonymous
So basically we would like to know what 45% of $50 is
anonymous
  • anonymous
so we would set up our equation like this .45*50=? What is the answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
2250
anonymous
  • 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
  • anonymous
sorry i didnt see that star but ya 22.50 is the correct answer :D

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
