    I've showed you how to do several similar problems. Now it's your turn.

    I'll be glad to check your answer.

    I am not sure of this but I have that jameka paid the least which is $24 and Caitlyn paid the most which is $44?

  • Math -

    When we take a percentage off a regular price, we need to subtract that from the regular price.

    60 * 0.4 = 24
    60 - 24 = 36

    You can also subtract 40% from 100% leaving 60% Jameka paid 0.6 * 60 = 36

    Now figure out how much Caitlyn paid.
