2, Which is better for the stated examples? $20 or 20% off?
Answer: For the CoMusic the $20 coupon would be better because $79.99 - $20.00 equals a total of $59.99 that you will be spending on the CoMusic, Opposed to the 20% coupon which translates to $79.99 divided by 20% equaling the quotient of $15.99 off on CoMusic,
2. Avengers Set= $49.99
Answer: For the Avengers Set the $20 Coupon would be better because $49.99-$20.00 equals a total of $29.99 that you would be spending on the Avengers Set. Opposed to the 20% coupon which translates to $49.99 divided by 20% equaling the quotient of $9.99 off on the Avengers Set.
3. Widescreen TV = $1499.99
Answer: The 20% coupon would be better because 20% of $1499.99 is $299.99 And that is how much you would be getting off instead of the $20 off coupon which is $1499.99 - $20.00 which equals a total of $1479.99 off on the Widescreen TV.
Do you have a hard time deciding which discount is best?
FAQ ( If i was given both a $20 off coupon and a 20% off coupon which is better to use?)
If you were given a 20% coupon your first step would be too..
Step 1. Recall that a percentage is a number over 100 = 20/100
Step 2. Then you determine the Unit price of the item that you want = x/100
Step 3. Next in order to find how much you get off you will then Multiply 100 by 20/100 in efforts to separate the "x" variable.
Step 4. Once you find the answer for X which is $20 0ff. subtract that from your intital $100 Unit Price equaling a total of $80
( BASICALLY YOUR GOAL IS TO DETERMINE HOW MUCH 0.2 X THE UNIT PRICE OF THE ITEM THAT YOU'RE PURCHASING IS. ONCE YOU FIND THAT DECIMAL IT IS YOUR ANSWER...IF IT IS ABOVE $20.00 THEN IT IS THE BETTER COUPON) HINT: IF UNIT PRICE IS BELOW $100 THIS COUPONS IS NOT THE BETTER CHOICE.
If you were given a $20 coupon your first step would be too..
Step 1. Recall that $100.00 - $20.00 equals $80.00
Step 2. That $80.00 is your answer.
(IF YOU FIND THAT THE $20 DISCOUNT IS HIGHER BECAUSE OF ITS 20.00 VALUE OPPOSED TO WHATEVER DECIMAL ANSWER YOU FIND WITH 20% DISCOUNT THAN IT IS THE BETTER DISCOUNT TO USE UNDER THAT CIRCUMSTANCE..)
