    1. a pair of jeans has a sale price of $49.95. If the store is having a 20% off sale, how much will the jeans cost?

    3. 20% x $49.95 = 20/100 x 49.95/1 = ? /100 = $??

    20/100=0.20. What is 0.20*49.95? Do you have a calculator? Unusual question for 'Advanced Physics'!

    20% off doesn't mean it costs 20%
