Wheel’s Bicycle shop advertised a bicycle for 15% off for a savings of $36. The bicycle did not sell so it was offered at a new 20% discount off the sale price.



a. What did the bicycle sell for regularly?



b. What is the amount of the new discount?

  • MATH -

    0.15x = 36
    x = 36/0.15
    x = 240

    240 - 36 = 204

    0.2 * 204 = ?

  • MATH -

    a)
    Since 15% is $36
    100$ = 36/.15 = $240

    b) 20% of $240 = $48
