Question: Percentage Saving = ?

Statement 1: Martin paid the regular price for the first piece and paid three-fourth of the regular price for the second piece.

Let, Prince of first piece = \$4
Price paid for second piece = \$3
Total Price Paid = \$7
Total Regular Price = \$4*2 = \$8
i.e. Percentage Saving = (1/8)*100 = 12.5%
SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: The regular price of the cake Martin bought was \$10 per one-pound piece
Price actually paid is unknown hence
NOT SUFFICIENT
