2 Answer

  • The answer is 13
    25/100 X 80/1
    25/10 X 8/1
    25 X 8 = 200
    200 divided by 10 is 20
    20/100 X 65/1
    20 X 65= 1,300
    1,300 divided by 100 is 13
    I made them into fractions.
    These were the steps^ :D
  • You would spend $52 on sandals.
    Turn 25% into a decimal. Which gives you .65
    Multiply $80 by .65 and that will give you $52.
