#3 The original price of the sofa was $500. It is now on sale for $440. What was the percent of decrease?

Answer: The percent of the decrease is ___%

P = DISCOUNT = $60 = ___%

W = REGULAR $ = $500 = 100%

600 x 20 = 12,000 / 100 = 12

So:

The percent of the decrease is 12%

3.

#9B If you enlarged the original diagram to twice its size, what would be the area of the door?

My mistake: THE AREA WOULD BE ___ SQUARE CENTIMETRES.

P = NEW AREA = ____= 200%

W = OLD AREA = 8 = 100%

8 x 200 = 1600 / 100 = 16

Correct answer: The are would be 32 square centimetres.

width x length = new area

or

4 x 8 = 32
