would $248.50 be my answer?
@arano1 it's a wrong answer, show your calculations please !
to find the percent of the discount take the original amount and multiply it by the percentage of the discount.
ie. 355 x 0.03 = ? <-- that number will be the amount that will be discounted ( call it x)
then take x and subtract that from the original amount,
original amount - x or 355 -x
that will give you the final amount after the discout
@Koikkara why are you giving him such a hard time dude?
355 - .3% = 354. so would it be c?
remember that which percentages it is over 100. so 40% would be 0.4
99% would be 0.99, 1% would be 0.01
@redbeardd You made him easy to copy-paste for Homework.
im a her -_-
The answer is not c
you can't just subtract 0.03 you multiply that into the original amount to get the discount. That number you get will be 3% or 355, then take that number and subtract it from the original to get the final cost.
354 is wrong because $1 is not 3 percent of 355
@Koikkara thats arguable, but whatever the case is its better than you telling her she has the right answer when its wrong?
