**a.** How much is saved if a customer buys the case at the sale price?

**b.** What is the sale price per bottle? Round to the nearest cent.

**c.** Which sales strategy earns more revenue for Magerâ€™s Market, selling 400 cases of water per week at the sale price or selling 300 cases per week at the regular price?

**(a)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The amount a costumer saves if he buys the case at the sale price, if the sale price of the 24-bottle case is $5.99 and the regular prize is $6.97.

The sale price and actual price of 24-bottle case of spring water at Magerâ€™s Market is $5.99 and 6.97.

**Formula used:**

To subtract two decimal numbers use the steps:

Step 1: Align the decimal points vertically.

Step 2: Put 0 at the empty places to make the number of digits after and decimal point equal.

Step 3: Perform subtraction from right to left and keep decimal point aligned.

**Calculation:**

Consider the sales price and the actual prize as $5.99 and 6.97 respectively...

**(b)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The sale price of each bottle, if the sale price of the 24 bottle case is $5.99 and the regular prize is $6.97.

**(c)**

To determine

The strategy to that earns more revenue among the strategies as “selling 400 cases of water per week at the sale price or selling 300 cases per week at the regular price” if the sale price of the 24 bottle case is $5.99 and the regular prize is $6.97.
