Based on thecalculations of the quoted costs, Audio: Mysterious Violinby what percent did Clark’s shadycontractor over bill him? Transition: Cut from Development of problem. Zoom in and hold text of problem.
  7. 7. Scene: Solution – Part 1 Narration: The first part of the solution is to calculate the total cost Clark was quoted for the job. To do this, we will take the $1000 installation cost, plus the $1300 for theSolution Video baseboards, then add in the cost of the tile, which was 1450 x $2.69 or $3900.50. The total cost of the job was $6200.50. Audio: Mysterious Violin Transition: Fade in from Statement of Problem to video of work for the solution.
  8. 8. Scene: Solution – Part 2 Narration: To find the percentage Clark’s shady contractor over-billed him we need to calculate percent change. To do this we will calculate the difference between the actual cost ($6200.5) and the amount Clark was charged ($10675);Solution Video $4474.50. Our last step, the percent difference, we divide $4474.50 by our original amount ($6200.50) and multiply by 100. Our final answer is 72.2%. This means Clark’s shady contractor over-billed him by 72.2% CRAZINESS! Audio: Mysterious Violin Transition: Cut from Solution – Part 1 to video of work for the final solution.
