### Find fractions, decimals, and percentages of amounts expressed as whole numbers, simple fractions, and decimals.

problem and explanation:

W.A.LT : find fractions, decimals and percentages of amounts expressed as whole numbers,simple fractions and decimals.

68 is 37.40 the first jeans are cheaper by 3.80.

The second tracksuit is cheaper because 25% 64 is 48 and 30% of 86 is 60.2.The second track suit is cheaper by 22.20.

The first sweat shirt is cheaper than the second because 30% of 60 is 42 and 40% off 72$ is 43.20 the first sweat shirt is cheaper than 1.20 the second one.

the first jacket 30% off 120 is 84 and the second one is 76.80 so this one is cheaper.

I figured all of these out by first turning the percent into a fraction then timing it by the cost and dividing by the fractions denominator.then misusing the from the total cost.

The least you could spend would be 200.40 and the most would be 224.80 you could save 24.40
