1. a) Mrs. Nelson will pay $45 for the speaker at Kohl’s. b) Mrs. Nelson would pay$43.70 for the speaker at Target.

Step-by-step explanation:

Selling price at Kohl = $60.00 Discount coupon = 25% Purchase price of Target =$38.00

Mark up = 15%

a.) How much would Mrs. Nelson pay for the speaker at Kohl’s?

Discount = 25% of selling price

Discount amount =

Discount amount = $15 Cost after discount = Selling price – Discount amount Cost after discount = 60-15 =$45

Mrs. Nelson will pay $45 for the speaker at Kohl’s. b.) How much would Mrs. Nelson pay for this speaker at Target? Mark up = 15% of purchase price Mark up amount = Mark up amount =$5.70

Price after mark up = Purchase price + Mark up amount

Price after mark up = 38.00+5.70 = $43.70 Mrs. Nelson would pay$43.70 for the speaker at Target.

Difference between prices = 45-43.70 = $1.30 Mrs. Nelson will save$15 on Kohl’s and she will get the speaker at $43.70 at Target’s, therefore, she would save$1.30 more if she buys speaker from Target’s.
