    By selling a TV for £1116, a retailer makes a profit of 24%. During a sale, the price is reduced to £1035.

    (i) How much did the store pay for the TV?

    THE ANSWER IS £900.

    (ii) What percentage profit is made on the TV during the sale?

    i dont understand part (ii)

    thank you

      Hi Sarah, to get the answer to part (ii) you find out the profit of the sale which is £1035-£900=£135. You then put 135 over 900 as a fraction and multiply the fraction by 100 to get 15%.

      I hope this helps you;)
