A clearance rack is marked as 60% off the regular price to be taken at the register. If a jacket on the clearance rack is marked $239.99, what will it ring up for at the register? a. $14.40 b. $60.00 c. $96.00 d. $143.99 Please select the best answer from the choices provided A B C D
it is c.
Mark down percent = 60%
Mark down price = $239.99
Original price of the rack
Let x be the original price of the product. The equation to get x is as expressed below;
60% of x = 239.99
0.6x = 239.99
x = 239.99/0.6
x = 399.98
Hence the rack will ring up for $399.98 at the register
The correct answer is C. $96.00
The regular price of the jacket at the clearance rack is $239.99, and since the 60% off of it would be: minus 143.99; you subtract 239.99-143.99 =95.99/96.00
You can identify the percentage in money which needs to be subtracted, by multiplying the original price (239.99) times (x) 0.60 (60%) equals(=).
