    You can figure these out
    CostA=.70*15.98
    CostB-.60*18.50

  • pre-algebra -

    just do the price,
    in BRAND A's case 15.98
    times the discount- 30%...move the decimal back two places...turns into .30

    15.98 X .30 = your answer

    That is the discount, not the price. See my post.
