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.

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.
