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 -

42
7

• math (correction) -

The 15% = \$36, so the original price is much higher than \$42.

15%x = \$36

x = 36/.15 = \$240

240 - 36 = 204

20% of 204 = \$40.80
