**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, January 27, 2013 at 8:44pm2/3 * 60 = 120/3 = $40 for the sneakers. You saved $20.

Do the same for the other two purchases.

I'll be glad to check your answers.

**Sammy**, Sunday, January 27, 2013 at 8:57pmYou buy sneakers at 2/3 of their original prioce of $60 = $40

A sweater at 7/10 of its oreginal price of $35 = 24.5

And a jacket at 5/6 of its oreginal price of $45 = $37.5

So you spent $ 102

Saved (origianl cost - buying cost) ( 60+35+45) - (102) = $38

The fraction is 38/140 simplify to 19/70

IS this all right?
