Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You are probably right. To be sure we would need to check what 30% off would be. Obviously if it were 100% off we wouldn't need to pay a dime, so sometimes percentages are better.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's a pretty painless calculation: 30% is just 0.30 as a decimal. Then, we simply take 0.30 times 90.00. This is the same as 27. So, we can see that you were correct. 30% is the same as 27 cash. So 30 cash would be the better discount.
