Calculate the sale price of each of the following discounted items. Homework Help ✎

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

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

    10% of $15,500 is $1,550
    1% of $15,500 is $155

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

    $11,625
