Discount and Sale Price

Question 1:

The difference between Discount and Sale Price is that Discount is a reduction in the cost of an item or the amount you save and Sale Price is you pay the item at it's regular price or the amount you pay. You calculate the Discount by first switching the percent which is how much it is off to a decimal. Then you multiply it by the cost of the item and the product is the amount you saved.
An example is: 15% of $290
0.15x290=$43.50

Sale Price is calculated by taking the regular price of the item and subtracting it by the discount price.
An example is: $290-43.50=246.50

Question 2:

50% of 70=
.5x70=35

35% of 80=
.35x80=28
