Here are the choices: A. $249.26 B. $250 C. $225 D. $255
ok i think this might b C or d but im not sure u have to tag someone else
Name the regular price.
It does not give the regular price.
Youre supposed to find it
That's why I told you to NAME it. Call it something so we can talk about it.
Seriously, call it "Steve", if you like. Just give it a name.
Okay, so this is a percent problem. The reduced price is $216.75 as we know. Are you asking me to choose on of the answer choices as an answer then we talk about it? If you are then I'm going to pick $250.00
#1 thing to do. If you don't know it's value, give it a name. Call it something. Once we have a name, we can write equations and create meaningful expressions.
Okay I think we will go with "Drew".
Fine. Drew = Original Purchase Price. What is the discount? The discount percentage is 15%. Write an expression that represents the discount.
I'm not sure how to do that. D= 216.75
How about Drew * 15% = 0.15 * Drew This is the Discount. Do you believe?
Yes. Okay 15% = 0.15 * Drew.
Okay, now we need an expression for the final purchase price. Drew is the Original Purchase Price 0.15 * Drew is the Discount Write an expression that represents the Sale Price.
D = $216.75 I hope this will suffice.
That's no good. That IS the final sale price. We need an expression containing the Original Price that REPRESENTS the final sale price.
I have no idea how to do that. All I could tell you about what your asking me is that it has Drew in it somewhere.
Yes you do. You do it all the time at the store. If the price is $100 and the discount is $10, the sale price is $100 - $10 = $90. Just do that with Drew.
Okay. I'm going to try it. $Drew - 15% = $216.75
Drew - 0.15*Drew = $216.75 That's it!!! Good work. How do we solve?
gtg Drew - 0.15*Drew = $216.75 Distributive Property Drew*(1 - 0.15) = $216.75 Resolve Parentheses Drew*(0.85) = $216.75 Divide by 0.85 Drew*(0.85)/0.85 = $216.75/0.85 Drew*(1) = $216.75/0.85 Drew = $216.75/0.85 = $255.00 and we are done. Once we get the name, we are off and running. Without the name, it is quite laborious. I do recommend picking simpler names. I noticed you kept using "D". That is much simpler than "Drew". It doesn't matter much, though. Just pick names you can remember and write a good definition.
