a) Find the population after the second year
















b) Explain why the percent wasn't 30% increase in two years


There wasn't a 30% increase because you are finding 10% the first year and then 20% of 100 + 10% . ( 20% of 110 )



Arjay was thinking of buying a car worth $23 000, but delayed purchasing the car for a year. During that year, the cost of the car increased by 3.2%.

7. A herd of 100 caribou was moved to a new location. The population increased by the 10% in the first year, and increased by 20% on the second year.

a) Find the population after the second year.

100 divided by 10 equals 10
Then add 10 to 100 it becomes to 110.

First year: 110

In the second year
110x 1.20 = 132
The population for the second year is 132.
b) Explain why the percent wasn't 30% increase in two years.

Because 1o% is the increased in the first year and 20% is the increase in the second year.

Question 5, Page 148










$19.99 multiplied by 3 = 59.97


5% + 6% = 12%

1 + 12% = 1.12

59.97 multiplied by 1.12 = 67.1664 (66.57)



Question 7, Page 149













a)



First Year:


Divide 100 by 10 = 10.

10 new Caribou.

10 + 100 = 110



Second Year:


Divide 110 by 10 = 11

Mulitple 11 by 2 = 22
110 + 22 = 132 Caribou



b)



There wasn't a 30% increase because the second year, it is 20% off of the 10% in the first year (20% increase of the 110 caribou)




Question 6, Page 148 $38.25









Week 1:


$85.00 divided by 2 = 42.50



Week 2:


42.50 divided by 10 = 4.25


$42.50 - $4.25 = $38.25

4.) Chris purchased the following items:
  • 2 binders at $4.99 each
  • 1 math set for $3.99
  • a backpack for $19.99

Find the total cost including 5% GST and 7% PST.

This is the calculation I did to figure out the final price with taxes included:

4.99 x 2 = 9.98

9.98 + 3.99 + 19.99 = 33.96

33.96 x 0.12 ( add the GST and PST- which makes 0.12 ) = 4.07 ( tax money )

4.07 + 33.96 = $38.03 ( final price, taxes included too.)


13.) A ski jacket has been marked down on three occasions, first 20% off, then 25% off the new price, and finally 50% off the previous price. What is the overall percent saved?


This is the calculation I did to find the overall percent saved:

For example, if the jacket was $100,

100 x 20% ( 0.20 ) = 20

100 - 20 = 80

80 x 25% ( 0.25) = 20

80 - 20 = 60

60 x 50% ( 0.50) = 30

60 - 30 = $30 ( final price )

$100 - $30 = $70

$70 divided by 100 = 0.7 ( 70%) ( savings )


12.) a.) What is 115% of 230?

115% ( 1.15 ) x 230 = 264.50
