She wants to get business cards printed so she can pass them out around town. The price to print 100 cards is \$10. The company has a deal: for every 100 cards over 500 that she purchases, Ms. Weiner will get \$2 off her total cost. How much will it cost Ms. Weiner to get 1,200 business cards? Answer: COST WITHOUT DISCOUNT (\$10 for each 100 business cards purchased) = (1200/100)*10 = \$120 DISCOUNT (\$2 discount for every 100 cards above 500 cards) = 2*(1200 - 500)/100 = 2*(700)/100 = \$14 TOTAL COST Total Cost = COST WITHOUT DISCOUNT - DISCOUNT Total Cost = \$120 - \$14 Total Cost = \$106 The final answer is: \$106 (about 8.8 cents per business card) Thanks for writing.
