  1. sounds like there are 2 brothers. So did the 2nd brother pay 1/3 of the whole cost, or just 1/2 of the amount the other brother spent? If the first, then

    Is the discount $50 on the whole order, or on each shirt? If the first, then each person paid

    (4 * 100 - 50)/3 = 350/3 = ___

    If some other scenario, then make the necessary adjustments.

  2. (100 - 50) * 4 / 2
    50 * 4 / 2
