11-76.

Calculate the sale price of each of the following discounted items.

1. A car originally priced at $15,500$ is discounted $25\%$.

Think of this as $15,500 - 2(10\% \text{ of } 15,500) - 5(1\% \text{ of } 15,500)$.

$10\% \text{ of } 15,500 \text{ is } 1,550$
$1\% \text{ of }15,500 \text{ is } 155$

$15,500 - 2\left(1,550\right) - 5\left(155\right)$
$15,500 - 3,100 - 775$

$11,625$

2. A pair of shoes originally priced at $39$ is discounted $15\%$.

Follow the same steps as part (a).
