### Camille's scribepost for Feb. 2

Foldable

KEY WORDS

• Percents can be combined by adding to solve problems. 5% + 7% = 12%

• To calculate the increase in a number,

You can add the combined percent
amount to the original number.
12% of 100 = 0.12 × 100 = 12
100 + 12 = 112

You can multiply the original number
by a single percent greater than 100.
112% of 100 = 1.12 × 100
= 112

• Percents of percents can be used to determine amounts that result from
consecutive percent increases or decreases.

Show you know

What is the final sale price at each store? Which is a better buy?
Store A: 50% off one day only
Store B: 25% off one day followed by 25% off the reduced price the
second day

200 is the price and to get 50 % you divide 200 by 2 which is 100 so the sale price is 100 dollars.

The price is 200 and to find 25% you divide 200 by 4 and the other side by 4 . Which is 50. 50=25 %. so 200-50 =150 and the percent is 75 percent. you subtract 50 from 200 because 50 is 25% and the discount is 25%.
So then the next day its on sale again but 25% off yesterdays price . So 150 is the new 100% then to find 25% 150 divided by 4 = 37.50 and remember whatever you do on one side you do to the other side. So 25% is 37.50 so then you take 150 -37.50 and it equals 112.50
Store A is the better buy because the sale price is 100 and the sale price at store b is 112.50.
