Joyce got a discount of 20% on a skirt whose usual price was \$50
and a discount of \$14 on a blouse whose usual price was \$46.
Express the total discount she got as a percentage of the total usual price of the items.

2)
Catherine and Isaac shared the cost of a birthday present for their father.
Isaac paid \$74. If he had paid \$39 less,

hey tping

Following pls find my worked solution:

Q1.

Discount (Skirt) = (20/100) × 50 = \$10
Total discount = 10 + 14 = \$24

Total % discount = (24 / 96) × 100 = 25%

Q2

Given that C's share increase by 65% after C had to pay \$39 more, we have ...

65% --> 39
100% --> (39 / 65) × 100 = 60

So C's share in the present was \$60

Cost of present = 60 + 74 = \$134

Q3

65% --> 715
100% --> (715 / 65) × 100 = 1100 {cost price=CP}

To make a profit of \$215, selling price would be ...

1100 + 215 = \$ 1315

==============

Trust the above helps.

Do let me know again if these are different from your Answerkey or if there's further clarification.

Cheers,
Edward.
