This gives us 24 people, which is not a multiple of 9. Keep adding 7 to the number of people until you arrive at a multiple of 9 and you have the answer.

After a 15% discount, the cost of the bike will be £85. The actual discounted price of the bike is £238. Does that help to calculate the original price?

 Author: pinkrabbit38 [ Thu Aug 29, 2019 2:28 pm ] Post subject: Re: examples tiffin maths questions £238 = 85%Therefore divide 238 by 8.5 Then multiply by 10= £280
