Unformatted text preview: 1. The price ofthejeans atthe beginning ofthe season is $53.69 a. 42.95 rt .25 = 10.2325 Rounded up = $10.24 Then add the $10.24 (25% increase) to the $42.95 (original price) = $536825 rounded up = 553.69 b. You can solve the price the sale price of the jeans by reducing it 25% from the original price of $53 .69. $53.69 1!; .25 = 13.423 Rotmded up = $13.42 Next you would subtract $13.42 [you would be subtracting 25% off from $53 .69) Therefore, the sale price after reducing 25% from the original price is $402625 rounded up = $40.22 I was expecfing the sale price to be lower than the cost at the beginning of the season 2. To calculate this, we would solve it by firsttahing off 25% of the sale price and then increase the price by 25%. a. $42.95 rt .25 = $10.24! $42.95 - 10.24 = 532.21 b. $32.21 it .25 = $3.05 2 $32.21 + $3.05 = $40.26 After deducting 25% off the sale price and then increasing it to 25% you end up with the original sales price of $40.22. therefore we are able to determine the sales price before and after both decreasing and increasing by multiplication. As for why the price appears lower than the original price the numbers was both increased and decreased using the same percentage by the original price. Reducing the percentage shows a greater effect on the number than the increase itself. ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
