3) in each of the following cases find the rate of discount(as a percent), given the marked price and the amount paid.
a) Marked price =$1 and the amount paid =0.90
I think 0.90 , we have to convert to 90/100.$1=100/100
now, 100-90 =10, i think answer is 10%???
b)Marked price is $1,000 and the amount paid=$945.
Cannot complete:-(
1000-945=55$, then????
c)Marked price-$200 and the amount paid=4170
my answer is 200-170= 30$, don't know then next step:-(
d)Marked price =$4,400 and the amount paid =$3,960.
my answer is 4400-3960=$340, but don't know next step:-(.
