Directions

A $60 dress is on sale at 10% off. What’s its sale price? First, figure out the discount:

Convert 10% to 0.10 Multiply $60 by 0.10 to get a discount of $6.

Then, subtract the $6 discount from the $60 original price to get a sale price of $54.

Drag the steps in the order you’d perform them (from top to bottom) to compute the cost of a $1,100 couch on sale at 15% off.

Convert 15% to 0.15
Multiply $1,100 × 0.15
Subtract $165 from $1,100
The final cost is $935
