PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students should already be proficient with decimal skills to carry out this real life application activity. There's a lot to remember: coupons are applied to the top 6 most expensive items, the sweatshirt isn't taxable but is included in the subtotal, to turn a percent into a decimal the decimal point moves 2 spaces to the left, the total is the tax plus the subtotal. For more advanced learners, I like to pose the question: When using a coupon you're not paying for 20% of the item, how much of the item are you paying for? There will be some that will recognize they could just take price(.8) as opposed to price - (price*.2). Students enjoy this in a small group setting, lots of productive banter :)

Please note this is NJ Based, hence the 7% sales tax, and food and clothing are not taxed in NJ. You can download software that will convert PDF to Word to make these adjustments or perhaps this was a purchase made while on a visit to NJ :)
