    2/3 * 60 = 120/3 = $40 for the sneakers. You saved $20.

    Do the same for the other two purchases.

    I'll be glad to check your answers.

    You buy sneakers at 2/3 of their original prioce of $60 = $40

    A sweater at 7/10 of its oreginal price of $35 = 24.5

    And a jacket at 5/6 of its oreginal price of $45 = $37.5

    So you spent $ 102

    Saved (origianl cost - buying cost) ( 60+35+45) - (102) = $38

    The fraction is 38/140 simplify to 19/70

    IS this all right?
