For every 2 notebooks sold at a certain shop, the savings is \(2*59 - 99 = 19\) cents.

Therefore, the amount saved by purchasing 10 of the notebooks in a sale is \(5 * $0.19 = $0.95\)(Option B)

Initial price for 2 notebooks 2*59=118 cents
After discount 99cents
Difference $0.19 for 2 notebooks
Difference for 10 notebooks 0.19*5=$0.95

In My Opinion
Ans: B

P.S. if anyone knows a notebook for $0.59 Let me know, I wont claim the discount :)

The actual cost of notebooks is 0.59*100 => $ 5.90

Cost of the notebooks on discount is 5*99 => $ 4.95

So, The amount saved is $ 0.95, ANswer must be (B)

Note :

Normal Rate : 59 cents each

Special Sale = 2 for 99 cents.

No. of Notebooks to purchase = 10

Calculation :

10 * 59 cents = 5.9 $

5 *99 cents = 4 . 95 $

The amount we can save buying 2 at a time = 5.9 - 4.95 = 0. 95

The best answer is B.

Solution


Given:
    • In a certain shop, normal selling price of a notebook is 59 cents
    • However, currently the sale price is 99 cents for 2 notebooks

To find:
    • Amount saved by purchasing 10 notebooks at the sale price

Approach and Working:
    • Actual price of 10 notebooks = 10 * 59 cents = 590 cents = $5.9
    • Sale price of 10 notebooks = 5 * 99 cents = 495 cents = $4.95
    • Amount saved by purchasing 10 notebooks at sale price = $5.9 – $4.95 = $0.95

Hence, the correct answer is option B.

Answer: B
