Wheel’s Bicycle shop advertised a bicycle for 15% off for a savings of $36. The bicycle did not sell so it
was offered at a new 20% discount off the sale price.
(a) What did the bicycle sell for regularly? ______________
(b) What is the amount of the new discount? _____________

  • math - ,

    42
    7

  • math (correction) - ,

    The 15% = $36, so the original price is much higher than $42.

    15%x = $36

    x = 36/.15 = $240

    240 - 36 = 204

    20% of 204 = $40.80
