Discount : What you save

Sale Price: What you pay

...And how you can show these as a percnt.

For this problem I used a ratio table.

First I found 1% and then used that to find the ,

GST : 1.75

PST : 2.10

The total cost of the backpack would be.. $38.85

$35.00

$1.75

$2.10

--------

$38.85

To double cheack my answer I added the percent of the GST and PST together and found that percent out of 100%.

$35.00 + $3.85 = $38.85

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

100% - 40% = 60% so I found 60% of 35, and then I found the GST and PST from that.

**Please comment and tell me if anything is wrong**
