Math

The coach for a basketball team wants to buy new shoes for her 12 players.
Super Sports is offering a 20% discount on each pair of shoes, which were originally priced $72.50. A 6.5% sales tax will be applied to the discounted price.
The same shoes are also available on Double Dribble’s web site for $54.75. A 9% processing fee will be applied to the cost of the shoes, plus a shipping fee of $5.99 for each pair.
What is the difference in the total costs of the 12 pairs of shoes between the two stores.

  1. Just find the difference for one pair, since there is no quantity discount.
    Then multiply by 12
    Super Sports: 72.50 * 0.80 * 1.065
    Double Dribble: 54.75 * 1.09 + 5.99
