• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿Quinn's mom bought him a pair of swimming trunks for 40% off the original price. If the original price was \$35.00, how much did she pay?A. \$14.00B. \$21.00 C. \$33.60D. \$36.40﻿
• ﻿﻿﻿Step 1: Read the question and Assign question type! Since it's talking about discounts and sales, I'm going to say it's a Ratio and Proportions problem!﻿﻿﻿

• Quinn and his mother go shopping for swim trunks at the mall and encounter a wonderful sale!
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿Quinn's mom bought a pair of swimming trunks for 40% off the original price. If the original price was \$35.00, how much did she pay?A. \$14.00B. \$21.00 C. \$33.60D. \$36.40﻿
• \$ ﻿ %X 4035.00 100
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿Since it's RP I'll have to use MATH to Show my strategy! So I'll start by Making my table and Assigning my given numbers.

• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿Now I can go ahead and Test a pattern. Since I have my table I can go ahead and cross multiply! ﻿Time to Help find the unknown numbers!

• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿But I know that 40% is the DISCOUNT, so I know that I have to subtract that from the original price. When I do that, I get answer choice C: 21.00. which makes sense because 40% is close to 50% which means it should be a little less than half off the original price.
