ChatGPT 3.5 User Beth visits a large department store during the January sales. She spots these two sale stickers. Which one has the larger percentage reduction? Was $39.99 Now$25! Or Normal price $52 Take 35% off! ChatGPT To compare the percentage reductions, let's calculate: For the first sticker: Original price =$39.99 Sale price = $25 Percentage reduction = $(Original price - Sale price$ / Original price) * 100 For the second sticker: Original price =$52 Reduction = 35% Sale price = Original price - $Reduction * Original price$ Comparing the calculated percentages will tell us which item has the larger reduction. Let's do the math: Percentage reduction for the first sticker: $(39.99 - 25$ / 39.99) * 100 ≈ 37.5% Percentage reduction for the second sticker: Sale price = 52 - $0.35 * 52$ = 52 - 18.2 = \$33.8 Percentage reduction = $(52 - 33.8$ / 52) * 100 ≈ 35% The first sticker has the larger percentage reduction, approximately 37.5% compared to approximately 35%
