A toy is on sale but you brought a coupon, which is better?
Finding the price of the discount:
To find the price of the toy with the discount you would need to multiply the original price by 0.2 since 20% is equal to 2 tenths.
-so 26.99x0.2= ''5.40 is the amount of money that the discount would save you, subtract that from the original price and you get the new price after the discount.''
- 26.99-5.40= ($21.59)
the coupon would save you $20 so you would subtract the two prices to get the new price
26.99-20.00= ''$6.99 would be the new price after the coupon''
Comparing the two new prices would show you which is a better save.
The discount would save you $5.40, pricing the toy at $21.59.
The coupon would save you $20.00, pricing the toy at $6.99.
to find the difference you would need to subtract the two new prices and see which one is better. (21.59-6.99=14.60)
The coupon would save you $14.60 more than the discount so going with the coupon would be the smarter move
