Suppose your police department is planning the purchase of 70 new laptops for its patrol cars.
Research and find a particular selling price for any style of laptop.
Suppose that the laptops are marked down 3% off the total price. Calculate how much the department will save with the 3% savings.
What might be reasons that the laptop provider would give the police department a markdown on the purchase of those laptops? Explain clearly.

it would save .3(price)(70 laptops)
because 1) they buy in bulk
2) it's a public department, just as a donation
3) because they have a contract with the company

Yea but when i try to deduct the 3% it says 14.4 i need and exact answer so could you help

- amistre64

look online for the price of a laptop; and use that for the "price" part

- amistre64

whats your laptop price?

- anonymous

480

- amistre64

ok, 480 * 30% = savings
480/100 = 1%; 3 of those 1% is 3%
3*480/100 = savings

- amistre64

14.4 is an exact number, but for money we like to see it in 2 deci spots; 14.40

- amistre64

so, we save $14.40 on each laptop and we have 70 of them to buy so out total savings is?
70 * 14.40

- amistre64

precent means: per 100. /100

- amistre64

percent even, gotta read thru the typos

- amistre64

1% = total/100

- amistre64

once we know 1% we can add up as many as we need to get to any % we want
