Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. Tess and Dan have $24.00 each to spend at a book fair, where all students receive a 15% discount. They both want to purchase a copy of the same book, which normally sells for $24.50 plus 10% sales tax. To check if she has enough to purchase the book, Tess takes 15% of $24.50 and subtracts that amount from the normal price. She takes 10% of the discounted selling price and adds it back to find the purchase amount. Dan takes 85% of the normal purchase price and then computes 110% of the reduced price. Is Tess correct? Is Dan correct? Do they have enough money to purchase the book? Explain your answer using complete sentences.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So basicly all we did was subtract 24.50 from 15. Then add 10 and then round.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0$24.50 x 0.85 = $20.825 $20.825 x 1.10 = $22.9075 $22.9075 < $24.00, so then tess and dan have enough money for the books.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no that 20.825 doesnt multiply by 1.10 because in the question it says they both have 24.00 each and the books are 24.50, dan takes 85 percent of the normal price which is 24.50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can't we just add all the number then add the the percents and subtract it?
