Q:
# Mackenzie purchased a new refrigerator for $350 and a new range top for $300. The store was offering a deal of 25% if both were purchased at the same time. What is the sale price for these items?

Accepted Solution

A:

Sale price of a new refrigerator is $262.5 and Sale price of new range of top = $225 when purchased together.
Solution:
Given that Mackenzie purchased a new refrigerator for $350 Mackenzie purchased a new range of top for $300
The store was offering a deal of 25% if both were purchased at the same time.
Need to determine sale price of these two items
Assuming that these two items are purchased at the same time , there will be 25% deal
So sale piece of a new refrigerator of $350 = $350 – 25% of $350 = 350 – 0.25 x 350 = 350 – 87.5 = $262.5
And Sale price of new range of top = $300 = $300 – 25% of $300 = 300 – 0.25 x 300 = 300 – 75 = $225
Hence sale price of a new refrigerator is $262.5 and Sale price of new range of top = $225 when purchased together.
