An author is having a book signing at a store. He agrees to give 5% of his profit to literacy programs and 15% of his profit to his manager. If he makes a profit of $200.00, how much of his profit does he take home?
 

Sagot :

First, you add 15%+5% which equals 20%.

Second, you find 20% of $200. You turn 20% into a decimal, which is 0.20. Then multiply 200 times 0.20
which is 40. $40 is the amount the author gave away.

Third, you subtract 200-40 which equals $160. He takes home $160.

Hope that helped! :)

The profit of the author will be $160.
