Percent Increase and Percent Decrease percent increase percent increase  percent decrease percent decrease  In each case write the quotient as a percent. Helpful Hint Make sure that this number in the denominator is the original number and not the new number.

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 47 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Percent Increase Example: Nancy’s salary increased from \$16,000 last year to \$17,280 this year. What was the percent increase in her salary? Procedure: First, find the amount of increase. Then compare that amount to the previous amount, last year’s salary. Amount of increase = original amount – new amount Nancy’s salary increased by 8%. = 17,280 – 16,000 = 1280

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 48 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Percent Decrease Example: Mark weighed 285 pounds two years ago. After dieting, he reduced his weight to 171 pounds. What was the percent decrease in his weight? Procedure: First, find the amount of decrease. Then compare that amount to Mark’s previous weight. Amount of decrease = original amount – new amount Mark’s weight decreased by 40%. = 285 – 171 = 114

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 50 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Percents are frequently used in the retail trade. For example, most states charge a tax on certain items when purchased. This tax is called a sales tax, and retail stores collect it for the state. Sales tax is almost always stated as a percent of the purchase price. Sales Tax and Total Price A 5% sales tax rate on a purchase of a \$10.00 item gives a sales tax of sales tax  5% of \$10  0.05 ∙ \$10.00  \$0.50

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 51 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. The total price to the customer would be purchase price plus sales tax \$10.00  \$0.50  \$10.50 Sales Tax and Total Price

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 52 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. sales tax  tax rate ∙ purchase price total price  purchase price  sales tax Sales Tax and Total Price

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 53 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Finding Sales Tax and Total Price Example: If the sales tax rate is 7.75%, find the amount of sales tax due on a purchase of \$64.95. Also find the total that the customer must pay. Solution: Write the percent as a decimal and multiply it by the price. Round that amount to the nearest penny. Add the sales tax to the price to find the total amount to be paid. 7.75% = 0.0775, so the sales tax is 0.0775  64.95  \$5.03. The total amount paid is \$64.95 + 5.03 = \$69.98.

Publishing as Prentice Hall. commission  commission rate sales Calculating Commissions A wage is payment for performing work. Hourly wage, commissions, and salary are some of the ways wages can be paid. Many people who work in sales are paid a commission. An employee who is paid a commission is paid a percent of his or her total sales.

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 55 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Finding a Commission Rate Example: Adam is a salesperson at a furniture store and earns a 4.5% commission on everything he sells. Last week, he sold furniture totaling \$38,957. How much did Adam earn in commissions last week? Solution: Multiply the percent by the total amount sold and round that amount to the nearest penny. 4.5% = 0.045, so the commission is 0.045 38,957 = \$ 1753.07. The amount of commission Adam earned last week was \$1753.07.

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 56 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Discount and Sale Price` Suppose that an item that normally sells for \$40 is on sale for 25% off. This means that the original price of \$40 is reduced, or discounted, by 25% of \$40, or \$10. The discount rate is 25%, the amount of discount is \$10, and the sale price is \$40  \$10, or \$30. amount of discount  discount rate ∙ original price sale price  original price  amount of discount

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 57 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Finding a Discount and a Sale Price Example: This week at Brown’s Department Store, purses are discounted 15%. Find the new price of a purse that costs \$46.90. Solution: Amount of discount = 0.15 46.9 = \$ 7.03 Sales price = \$46.90 – 7.03 = \$39.87 The new price of the purse is \$39.87.

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 59 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Interest is money charged for using other people’s money. Money borrowed, loaned, or invested is called the principal amount, or simply principal. The interest rate is the percent used in computing the interest (usually per year). Simple interest is interest computed on the original principal. Calculating Simple Interest

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 60 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Simple Interest  Principal Rate Time or I  P R T where the rate is understood to be per year and time is in years. Simple Interest

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 61 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. total amount (paid or received)  principal  interest Finding the Total Amount of a Loan

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 62 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Compound interest is computed on not only the principal, but also on the interest already earned in previous compounding periods. If interest is compounded annually on an investment, this means that interest is added to the principal at the end of each year and next year’s interest is computed on this new amount. Calculating Compound Interest

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 63 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Compound Interest Formula The total amount A in an account is given by where P is the principal, r is the interest rate written as a decimal, t is the length of time in years, and n is the number of times compounded per year.
