A sweater you want usually sells for \$100 at a local clothing store, but the retailer is holding a rare one-time sale this weekend.  The sale price for the sweater is 50% off double the retail price.  Is this a good deal?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

• C.

Depends

B. No
Explanation
The sale price for the sweater is 50% off double the retail price. This means that the sale price would be 50% off of \$200, which is \$100. However, the original price of the sweater is \$100, so the sale price is actually the same as the original price. Therefore, this is not a good deal as there is no discount on the sweater.

In the United States, the 4th of July is celebrated as Independence Day, marking the country's declaration of independence from Great Britain in 1776.
