Michael has a $30 gift card. He used it to buy 2 DVDs and a hard cover book. What percent of the amount on the gift card did Michael spend?

Solution

VerifiedDetermine first the total amount of what Michael bought:

$\begin{gather*} 9.50 \times 2 + 8.00 = \boldsymbol{\$27} \end{gather*}$

In order to determine the percent of the amount on the gift card already spend, divide the total amount spend by the amount of the gift card, then convert it to percent.

$\begin{gather*} 27 \div 30 = 0.9\\ 0.9 \times 100 = \boldsymbol{90\%} \end{gather*}$
