Jameka bought a $60.00 necklace on sale for 40% off its regular price. Caitlyn bought an $80.00 necklace for 55% off its regular price. Who paid the least amount for their necklace? Show your work and explain your reasoning

I am not sure of this but I have that jameka paid the least which is $24 and Caitlyn paid the most which is $44?

When we take a percentage off a regular price, we need to subtract that from the regular price.
60 * 0.4 = 24
60  24 = 36
You can also subtract 40% from 100% leaving 60% Jameka paid 0.6 * 60 = 36
Now figure out how much Caitlyn paid.
