Question

The shipment of the necessary materials to begin building the new game room arrived, and the bill was $2,992.50 for 30 drywall boards. The total included a 5% discount. Your project manager notices you need to place another order for two more drywall boards. The company said the discount would not apply because the discount only applies to orders of$1,000 or more. How much will the two shipments of drywall cost?

The cost of two drywall without the discount will be $210. ### What is the percentage? The percentage is defined as a given amount in every hundred. It is a fraction with 100 as the denominator percentage is represented by the one symbol %. As per the given, Cost of 30 drywall boards =$2992.50
This includes a 5% discount.
Suppose the original price was $x. New price = original price – 5% of the original price 2992.50 = x – 0.05x x =$3150
Cost per drywall board = 3150/30 = $105 For 2 drywall =$105 x 2 = $210 Hence “Without the rebate, the price for two drywall will be$210″.
