  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  17. take the $60 and multiply it by the fraction given 2/3 and you get 2*60=120, 120/3=$40
    You do the same for all the others and add them up to answer a.
    35*7/10=$24.5, 45*5/6=$37.5 Total=$72
    Then add up the prices without multiplying by the fractions given. Then subtract what you got for part a from it.
    60+35+45=$140-$72=$68
    What fraction of the total did ........68/140
