Answers

You first want to convert the percent to a decimal. You can’t mathematically use a percentage in calculations. And if you really want you can divide the percent by 100 and get a fraction. It turns into 1/4.

You gotta take 1/4 of the price of the shirt and then subtract that answer from the original price. The discount itself isn’t the real price of the shirt. Multiplying by 1/4 is the same thing as dividing by 4. Do $38.99/4 to get $9.75 discount.

Then $38.99 - $9.75 = $29.24 as the real price of the shirt
The anser is 345 and 10

Option C. $29.24

Step-by-step explanation:

Bobbi wanted to purchase a shirt that had an original price of $38.99 at the store where she works.

She gets an employee discount of 25%.

Now she need to pay for the shirt = 38.99 - (25% × 38.99)

                                                        = 38.99 - 9.7475

                                                        = $29.2425 ≈ $29.24

She need to pay $29.24.

Option C. is the answer.

C
38.99x0.25=9.7475
38.99-9.7475=29.2425
