Kia and Nya are at Luna Park. Kia notice the sign that had said that the tickets were 50% off today. If the original price was $20,how much will they have to play now?
The first step to this problem would be to Read the question and assign our question type. Since it's talking about the tickets being 50% off. I would say this is a Ratio and Propotions question type problem.

Alright so I know for sure that the DISCOUNT for the tickets were 50%, so I know that I have to subtract that from the original price of the tickets. When I do that, I get the answer choice C: 30.00, which makes lots of sense because 50% is close to 60% which means it should be a little less than half of the original price of the tickets

Phew! Now I remember that the each ticket for Kia and Me were 50% off which leaves me to the conclusion of that I need to subtract it from the original price! But that irritating second answer choice would for sure have gotten my eye if i hadnt doubled checked the question and wording of course! So main in its distractions :)
