Natasha has been saving money to buy a new pair of running shoes. The pair she wants cost \$132. She currently has \$80. She saw an ad in the paper that the store is having a "1/3 off sale" Does she now have enough money to buy the shoes? if not how much more does she need. if Yes, how much will she have left over?

no, she does not have enough. the shoes are \$88 with the discount. so she needs \$8. To figure this out, divide \$132 by 3. multiply that by two and then you have the cost of the shoes.
