## munkingirl99 2 years ago Two stores carry a similar stereo for the same original price of \$573. One store offers a 16% discount and the second store sells the stereo for \$458.40. Which store gives the bigger percent discount? Justify your answer

1. mayankdevnani

When 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

The second store because after the discount from the first store, it is \$481.32. The second store is still cheaper

welll. first i am not angry lol 1. Multiply 573 by .16 2. you should have gotten 91.68 3. subtract 91.68 from 573 4. should have gotten 481.32 5. second store is 458.40 so it is still cheaper than the first store! :D
