Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Maria and Edwin have $23.00 each to spend at a book fair, where all students receive a 25% discount. They both want to purchase a copy of the same book, which normally sells for $26.50 plus 10% sales tax. To check if she has enough to purchase the book, Maria takes 25% of $26.50 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. Edwin takes 75% of the normal purchase price and then computes 110% of the reduced price. Is Maria correct? Is Edwin correct? Do they have enough money to purchase the book? Explain your answer using complete sentences.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.026.50 + 10% book Maria 23.50 money 25%  discount what she did: 26.50  0.25 (26.50) = 26.50 + (0.25)(26.50) = then add those. That will be the purchase amount of the book that maria calculated. Edwin 23.50 money 25%  discount what he did: 26.50 x 0.75 x 1.10% = That will be the purchase amount of the book that edwin calculated.
