Question #3.

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
