Amanda has saved $780 to make a down payment on a used minivan that costs $7100. The car dealer requires a down payment of 12% of the purchase price. Has she saved enough money to make the down payment?
12 % of 7100 = what?
12% x 7100 = 12/100 x 7100 = .12 x 7100 = $ 852 Looks like Amanda is a bit short of funds ! (WHO wants a minivan anyway??)
