# 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%. how much will she need to pay for the shirt? a. \$28.00 b. \$28.50 c. \$29.24 d. \$38.00 !

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

Do you know the answer?
