Throughout last year, a stylish jacket had a full price of P in certain store. At the beginning of this year, the regular full price of the jacket rose A% percent. Shortly after the beginning of this year, this store had a sale, and Margarette bought the jacket at B% less than then this year’s current full price, where B > A. How much did Margarette save, buying the jacket this year on sale, as compared to what she would have spent last year?

Statement #1: P = $250

Statement #2: B – A = 5For a full explanation, see #11 in the second half of this post:
