Q:
# Two sporting goods stores are having discount sales on basketballs. • At one store, a basketball is on sale for 20% off the regular price of $24.95. • At the other store, the same kind of basketball is on sale for 25% off the regular price of $25.80. What is the difference between the sale prices of the two stores?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:$0.61Step-by-step explanation:1. Find the sales price of each store by multiplying the regular price by the % off to find the discount - then subtract. store A: 24.95*20% (or 0.20) = 4.99 (discount) 24.95 - 4.99 = 19.96 (sales price) store B: 25.80 * 25% (or 0.25) = 6.45 (discount) 25.80 - 6.45 = 19.35To find the difference of sales price, subtract 19.96 - 19.35 = 0.61
