Product Description
This 2 part activity gives students the opportunity to "plan the perfect breakfast party" while working with percent applications.

Part 1: Students are given a list of breakfast items of varying prices, each of which will be taxed (the sales tax rate varies for each item). Students choose 5 breakfast items for their party. They must set up a percent proportion to calculate the sales tax of each individual item, and then find the new price of each item. Finally, they must determine how much money they spend overall on their 5 items.

Students choose 5 breakfast items for their party. They must set up a percent proportion to calculate the amount of discount of each individual item, and then find the new price of each item. Finally, they must determine how much money they spend overall on their 5 items
