You are shopping for an executive desk chair at The Furniture Gallery. You see two you like on sale. Chair A was originally \$119.99 now on sale for \$79.99 and Chair B was originally \$149.99 now on sale for \$89.99. Calculate the markdown percent of each chair to determine which is the better bargain. Is it Chair A or Chair B? Answer for first part is Chair B. Using the information you calculated in the question above, consider the following. The Furniture Gallery is offering a 15% discount on plastic chair mats with the purchase of either chair. You have chosen a mat with an original price of \$29.00. You also decide to purchase a two-year leather protection plan on your chair for \$19.95. If you choose the chair with the greater markdown percent and the sales tax in your area is 6.3%, what is the total amount for all your purchases?

• algebra -

Chair A:
(79.99/119.99 )-1 = -0.333 = -33.3%.
The negative sign means "down".

Chair B:
(89.99/149.99)-1 = -0.400 = -40%.

Mat = 0.85*29 = \$24.65

Leather protection = \$19.95

• algebra -

Chair A:
(79.99/119.99 )-1 = -0.333 = -33.3%.
The negative sign means "down".

Chair B:
(89.99/149.99)-1 = -0.400 = -40%.

Mat = 0.85*29 = \$24.65

Leather protection = \$19.95

Total Cost = (89.99+24.65+19.95)*1.063=
\$143.07.

• Business Math -

Office Market is having a sale on printer paper. If you buy 2 reams for \$8.99 each, you will get a third ream free. Calculate the markdown percent. (Round the percent to the nearest tenth.)

If the offer were changed to “Buy 3, Get 2 Free,” what would be the new markdown percent?
