Shoes are on sale, buy one and get the cheaper pair 50% off. Jane and Janette wants to buy shoes and share equal amount of discount. If the pair of shoes that Jane wants to buy is 120, and the pair that Janette wants to buy is 60, how much do they each have to pay?

I tried to make some equations up, but I can't seem to figure it out.

  • Math -

    dont u just divide by 2 because 50% is half of one hundred

  • Math -

    The full price for both is 60+120 = 180
    Therefore the two of them get 90 back, or 45 each if they split the discount.
    Jane = 120 - 45 = 75
    Janette = 60 - 45 = 15
