**DrBob222**, Wednesday, April 9, 2008 at 3:07pmThe question to ask yourself is, "If the 450 item now costs 360, what percentage is that of the original price?"

450xwhat fraction = 360

fraction = 360/450 = 0.80 (so there was a 20% discount).

See if the other one is the same (I think it is if the usual selling price of 600 is on sale for 480.)

Then use that same fraction to multiply the 500 VCR to see what it would sell for.
