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.
