Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When solving questions involving original price and discounts, use the following general equation: Original price minus percent discount of original price = discount price So, x  %x = discount price If x = 573 and % = .16, then 573 .16(573) = discount price. So the discount price should be 481.32

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The second store because after the discount from the first store, it is $481.32. The second store is still cheaper
