. Rocco wants to buy an authentic professional football jersey of his favorite player. He has one coupon for 30% off and another coupon for $30.00 off. If the jersey costs $90.00 before the coupon, which coupon should he use to get the bigger discount?

    Well, first, just looking at it, do you have any gut feeling on which discount seems better to you?

    You 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.

    It'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.
