    Judy paid 80% of the original price.

    80% of something is 68

  • Math - ,

    Okay I think I get it..
    you just used the compliment to add up to 100? We are given 20%... did you say 100-20=80 and then turned 80 into a decimal ?

  • Math - ,

    Yes.

    Aren't u supposed to make 20 into a decimal and multiply that by 68? That's what I learned. Either I'm right or he tought my grade wrong lol
