    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

    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 ?

    If that was the question then your answer was correct.

    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

    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
