JULY PROBLEM OF THE MONTH
Here’s the problem —
Al’s Discount Clothing store is trying to entice customers with a
special “20-40” Percent Sale.
Here’s how it works. For all sale items, the Al’s
first takes off 20%. Then the store takes an
additional 40% off the sale price.
a) How much is the discount, under the terms
of this sale, for a bundle of clothes with retail
value of $250?
b) How much would the discount be if Al’s had
just run a straight 60% discount sale?
c) Why do you think that Al’s is running the
sale in this way?
