Total cost of Camera and lens when purchased separately = $278
Total cost of Camera and lens when purchased Together = $239
Saving = 278-239 = 39
Saving as a percent of Total separate cost = \(\frac{39}{278}\)*100 ; 39 * 7 = 273
so it is approx \(\frac{1}{7}\)*100 ~14%
A

Total price of the camera and lens when purchased separately = 209$ + 69$ = 278$
Total price when purchased together = 239$
Amount saved = 278$ - 239$ = 39$

Percentage of amount saved to total = Difference in the amount/original amount *100

= 39/278*100
= ~14%

Correct Answer = A

Price of the camera and lens when purchased separately = 209$ + 69$ = 278$

Total price when purchased together = 239$

Discount in $ = 278$ - 239$ = 39$

Discount % = 39/278% = 14%

Hence the correct answer is A

When purchased separately, Total cost = 278 $

When bought together price = 239 $

239 = x/100 * 278
x = 86 %

Now this 86 % is the difference between both the prices

But he saved 14 %
