Question and answer
What is the selling price of an article that lists at \$1500 subject to discounts of 40%, 25%, and 10%? If you’re currently making \$10.50 per hour and you’re offered a new job that pays \$11.75 per hour, what will be your percent of increase in pay? Find the price you would have to pay for the following item: radio \$500, F.O.B. factory; less 30%, 10%, 5%; terms: 2/10; freight \$62. (Assume that you pay the invoice as soon as you receive it.) You’ve bought 20 calculators listed at \$125 each less 15%. The date of the invoice was June 28, and you paid the bill on July 6. What amount did you pay if
the terms were 3/10, n/60? A coat was marked down from \$325 to \$275. What was the percent of discount? Use your calculator to check your answers to problems 1–15.

\$607.5 is the selling price of an article that lists at \$1,500 subject to discounts of 40%, 25%, and 10%. Solution: \$1500 - (\$1500 *40/100) = \$900; \$900 - (\$900 *25/100) = \$675; \$675 - (\$675 *10/100) = \$607.5

\$1500 - (\$1500 *40/100) = \$900;
\$900 - (\$900 *25/100) = \$675;
\$675 - (\$675 *10/100) = \$607.5

If you’re currently making \$10.50 per hour and you’re offered a new job that pays \$11.75 per hour, 11.9% will be your percent of increase in pay.
Solution:
Percentage Increase = ((New Pay - Old Pay) / Old Pay) * 100%

So, for this situation:

Percentage Increase = ((\$11.75 - \$10.50) / \$10.50) * 100%

Percentage Increase (1.25 / 10.50) * 100%

Percentage Increase 0.119 * 100%

Percentage Increase 11.9%

\$354.025 is the price you would have to pay for the following item: radio \$500, F.O.B. factory; less 30%, 10%, 5%; terms: 2/10; freight \$62.
Solution:
30% discount: \$500 * 0.30 = \$150
10% discount on the remaining amount: (\$500 - \$150) * 0.10 = \$35
5% discount on the remaining amount: (\$500 - \$150 - \$35) * 0.05 = \$15.75
Total discount = \$150 + \$35 + \$15.75 = \$200.75

\$500 - \$200.75 = \$299.25;
\$299.25 + \$62 = \$361.25;
2% of \$361.25 = \$7.225;
\$361.25 - \$7.225 = \$354.025

You’ve bought 20 calculators listed at \$125 each less 15%. The date of the invoice was June 28, and you paid the bill on July 6. \$2061.25 did you pay if the terms were 3/10, n/60.
Solution:
Total cost = 20 calculators * \$125 = \$2500;
Discount = \$2500 * 0.15 = \$375;
Total cost after discount = \$2500 - \$375 = \$2125;
Net amount due = Total cost after discount = \$2125;
3% of \$2125 = \$63.75;
\$2125 - \$63.75 = \$2061.25

Percentage Discount = (\$50 / \$325) * 100%

Percentage Discount 0.1538 * 100%

Percentage Discount 15.38%
