Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1#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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Fine. Drew = Original Purchase Price. What is the discount? The discount percentage is 15%. Write an expression that represents the discount.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure how to do that. D= 216.75

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How about Drew * 15% = 0.15 * Drew This is the Discount. Do you believe?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. Okay 15% = 0.15 * Drew.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0D = $216.75 I hope this will suffice.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's no good. That IS the final sale price. We need an expression containing the Original Price that REPRESENTS the final sale price.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Drew  0.15*Drew = $216.75 That's it!!! Good work. How do we solve?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1gtg 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.
