Worksheet Overview

Sometimes when we go shopping, we can use discount vouchers or coupons to save money.

Some coupons give a fixed amount of discount provided that you spend at least a certain minimum amount.

Some coupons give a percentage off.

 

Example

Jack buys a book for £22.40.

Which of these two coupons would be better for him to use to get the better discount.

 

          

 

Answer

£22.40 is more than £20, so he will get a £5 discount if he uses the orange £5 off coupon.

 

25% is the same as a quarter.

2240 ÷ 4 = 560

So he will get a £5.60 discount if he uses the blue 25% off coupon.

 

The blue 25% coupon gives the better discount.
