# Maths resist 2016 novemeber question watch

1. There was a question which was asking which shop was cheaper or something like that...
normal price = 1500
find 60% of the normal price (1500)then find 15% of that price
my answer was 60% of £1500 is £900 then i found 15% of £900 which was £135 then i added 900+135 and i got 1035 which then i took away from 1500 and i got £465 in total for the first shop

Then the second shop was simple is asked you to take away 2/3thirds of 1500 which was 1000 meaning you take 1000 from 1500 which leaves you with 500 for the second shop

so my conclusion the first shop was cheaper im i wrong or right helpp me xx
2. I swear 1500x60 gives you 90000 not 900, you would probably get a mark for couple of things that you worked out but not entirely sure if u got full marks although I suck at maths what other questions did you come across ?

Where did you get 1500 x 60?
5. I got £500 and £510, and the difference was £10.

It was 2/3 of £1500 = £1500 - 2/3 (£1000) = £500

The other one was £1500 (- 60%) = 900 = £600 - (15% - £90) = £510
6. I did 60% off 1500 which is 900, then I did 1500-900= 600. I did 15% off 600
For the second shop 2/3 of 1500
I did 2x1500=3000
Then 3000 divided by 3= 1000
The first shop was cheaper

The users above all done it in another way.
9. Yeah the first shop was cheaper
I did 60% off 1500 which is 900, then I did 1500-900= 600. I did 15% off 600
For the second shop 2/3 of 1500
I did 2x1500=3000
Then 3000 divided by 3= 1000
The first shop was cheaper
Two thirds of 1500 is 1000.

Two thirds of 1500 is 1000.
I do it a different way I did 2x1500=3000 divided by 3 =1000
13. Ugh.. If only a teacher could leak that question out ffs. it starting to bug me.
I do it a different way I did 2x1500=3000 divided by 3 =1000
