Section I • Understanding and working with Fractions

You work in the tool department at The Home Depot. Your manager asks you to set up a point-of-purchase display for a set of 10 wrenches that are on sale this week. He asks you to arrange them in order from smallest to largest on the display board. When you open the box, you find the following sizes in inches:

**a.** Rearrange the wrenches by size from smallest to largest.

**b.** Next your manager tells you that the sale will be “1/3 off” the regular price of $57 and has asked you to calculate the sale price to be printed on the sign.

**c.** After the sale is over, your manager asks you for the sales figures on the wrench promotion. If 150 sets were sold that week, what amount of revenue will you report?

d. If $6,000 in sales was expected, what reduced fraction represents sales attained?

The Home Depot is the largest home improvement chain in the world with approximately 2,250 stores in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, Mexico, and China.

Lowe’s is number two with about 1,650 stores.

**(a)**

To determine

The rearrangement of fractions

Explanation

**Given Information:**

The provided fractions is

Consider the fractions,

First find the L.C.M. of the denominators of the fraction

By observing these fractions L.C.M obtained is 320.

Divide the L.C.M. by the denominator of fractions, then multiply both the numerator and denominator of fraction with the number get after dividing L.C.M.

So, divide 320 by the denominator of fraction

Now, multiply numerator and denominator by 10:

Similarly, follow above calculation steps in each fraction

The next term of fraction is

Now, multiply numerator and denominator by 40:

The next term of fraction is

Now, multiply numerator and denominator by 32:

The next term of fraction is

Now, multiply numerator and denominator by 160:

The next term of fraction is

Now, multiply numerator and denominator by 20:

**(b)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The sale price of tools when regular price of tool

**(c)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The revenue generated after selling 150sets of tools for sale price

**(d)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The reduced fraction of sales attained if expected sales was
