2)In each of the following cases, find the price paid.
a) marked price =$1000 and the discount rate=6%
i think 6/100 x 1000 =60, $60 is the anwser?
b)Marked price=4200 and the discount rate= 2/50
i think we have to make 2/50 into % value as to get 100. 2/50 x 2 both numerator & denominator to get 4/100.
200 x 4/100 = 8, the answer is $8...pls confirm?
c)Marked price =4,400 and the discount rate =0.05
4,400 x 5/100= 220, my answer is 4220...pls confirm?
