5-101.

Lynn was shopping and found a purse that was marked with a discount of “$\frac { 1 } { 3 }$ off.” If the original cost of the purse was $\80$, how much will Lynn pay?

Find $\frac{1}{3}$ of $\80$ to determine the value of the discount.

To do this multiply the two values together:

$\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)(80)=26.67$

Lynn's discount is $\26.67$. How much will she have to pay after the discount?
