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. ...
