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've showed you how to do several similar problems. Now it's your turn.
I'll be glad to check your answer. 
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.
