Students will find discounts and sale prices for items selling at 20% off and 40% off by using tables. They will then find the general rules, using a variable, for finding those discounts and prices. First, students will create a table showing the discount and sale price for the 20% off sale the sporting goods store is having. The calculations will initially be done on the Home screen.
