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

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

14.4 is an exact number, but for money we like to see it in 2 deci spots; 14.40
amistre64
  • 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
