Dima called her friend to tell her that she saved 30% on her new skirt at a discount store. Her friend told her that she could have gotten a better deal at a different store that was advertising a sale if 1/3 off all clothing. If the original price of Dima’s skirt was $54, how much more could she have saved at the store her friend suggested?

30 % off   would save ya     .3 (54) = ?

1/3    off   would save ya      1/3 (54) = ?       ....and the difference is    ...... I think you can finish from here......
