# Dueling Discount Quiz

## 1. \$20 off vs. 20% off

Between the \$20 off coupon and the 20% off coupon, the \$20 off coupon is what I will actually use because it's a lot cheaper when taking \$20 off the original price. When using the 20% off coupon, it's still going to be expensive for some prices.

## \$20 Off Coupon

\$26.99 - Batmobile

-\$20 - Coupon

\$6.99

## 20% off coupon

\$42.99 - original price

5 - 20% off coupon

= 8.50

\$42.99 - original price

- \$8.50 - discount

\$34.49

## 2. Coupon Comparison

When using the \$20 off coupon, it simply takes \$20 off from the original price. For example, take the Converse shoes' original price, \$39.99. Then take away \$20 from \$39.99 and end up with \$19.99. Some people find it useful because it's cheaper than actually buying the item(s) with the original price.

When using the 20% off coupon, some items are still expensive but worth the price, even for the most expensive prices like this nightstand. Take the original price and divide by 5 (20% off). \$89.99 divided by 5 is \$17.99. Then, subtract \$89.99 and \$17.99 and end up with \$72.

## 3. Use of "\$x off" and "x% off" coupons

For some item(s) that are under \$50 like the converse shoes and the batmobile, I'll use the "\$x off" so it can be cheaper than using the "x% off." When using the "x% off," on the other hand, it can be money's worth but it is still going to be expensive for items like the CD music boombox. Take \$79.99 and divide by 5, which equals to 17.99. Then take the original price again and subtract from 17.99, and end up with \$68.
