PARCC Mathematics Practice Questions

1. An instrument store gives a 10% discount to all students off the original cost of an instrument. During a back to school sale an additional 15% is taken off the discounted price. Julie, a student at the local high school, purchases a flute for $306. How much did it originally cost?

1. C: The equation, x-0.10x-0.15(x-0.10x)=306, may be used to solve the problem. Solving for x gives 0.90x - 0.15x + 0.015x = 306, where x = 400. Thus, the original price was $400.
