### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, we must calculate the value of the discount a shop is offering on different items.

This shop is offering a 35% discount on all the prices.

Example 1

The discount on a snooker table costing £701 is

 35 100
x £701 = £245.35

On a calculator we would work out 0.35 × 701 = £245.35

Example 2

The discount on a rocking horse normally costing £546 is

 35 100
x £546 = £191.10

On a calculator we would work out 0.35 × 546 = £191.10
