Jasmine’s Saturday plans are to go to her favorite boutique that was having a sale on perfumes.  Her favorite perfume is 45% off, selling for a price of 38.83 each.  She figures she will buy 4 bottles at that rate.  Which of the expressions below would result in the total price in dollars?


A) (4 + 38)(4 + 0.83)

B) [4(38 + 0.83)]0.45

C) 4 + (38 + 0.83)

D) 4(38) + 4(0.83)

E) None of the above

EQUATIONS        p=b5c3 and c=x2g

SUBSTITUTE       p=b5(x2g)3

SIMPLIFY             p=b5x(2)(3)g(1)(3)

SIMPLIFY             p=b5x6g3
