10-18.

Round the ATV price to $4300 in order to make the percent easier to approximate.

Since we can find that 10% of $4300 is $430, we can also deduce that 5% of $4300 would be $215. 8% is roughly in the middle of 10% and 5%. What is your estimation?

Find 8% of $4298, then subtract that value from $4298 to find how much Jack paid.

4298 − 343.84 =

4298(.08) = 343.84

$3954.16

For each ATV, the original price was $4298. Based on part (b), it costs $3954.16 after the 8% discount. How much did Jack save on one ATV? Now multiply that number by 3.
