1. 12/5 x 2/5 = (12x2)/(5x5) = 24/25
60 x 2/5 = 120/5
doesn't look the same to me.
60/5 = 12x5/5 = 12

6. 2/5 * 60 = 2 * 60/5 = 2*12 = 24 = 24.00 (or, 0.40 * 60 = 24.00)
7/10 * 35 = (7*35)/(2*5) = 49/2 = 24.50 (or 0.70 * 35 = 24.50)
Without knowing the original price of the jacket, there's no way to tell how much it cost.
Figure that out, add up all the money spent.

Then subtract that from the sum of the original costs to find savings.

The fraction saved is (amount saved)/(total original cost)
