Two automobile dealers, A and B, had the same car which was listed at $18,000. Dealer A offered a $1200 rebate and would negotiate a further 8% discount after rebate. Dealer B offered an 8% discount and would negotiate a further $1200 rebate.
(a) Which dealer has the lowest price?
(b) What is the lowest price?
A will charge 0.92*(18,000 - 1200)
B will charge (0.92*18,000) - 1200
Compute and compare.
