Please clarify. Thanks Posted from my mobile device

Please clarify. Thanks Posted from my mobile device Hi Arjun966, the question states that "this represents a savings of 10 percent". It doesn't say, it represents 10%. Secondly, you figured out that the price after savings = 0.45, correct? Then how can the actual price be also 0.45? I hope I was able to answer your question correctly.
