AIM: How can we use proportions to find percents of amounts?
HW: Enjoy time with your families! Happy Thanksgiving!
Do Now: My Favorite "No"
A pair of sneakers originally cost $120. They are on sale for 25% off the original price. If you buy the sneakers in NYC where the tax rate is 8.875%, how much will you pay for the sneakers after the discount, tax included. Show all work.
Classwork: We used My Favorite "No" to analyze and learn from mistakes involving multi-step percent problems. The rest of the period reinforced processes when finding costs of items after discounts, including tax. We later took that understanding and applied it to finding the cost of a meal that included tax and tip.
Part/Whole = %/100, where Whole is the amount of the item(s) and the Part is the portion of the whole (tax, discount, markup, etc)
