Maria and edwin have 23.00 each to spend at a book fair where all students receive 25% discount. They both want to purchase a copy off the same book, which normally sells for 26.50 plus 10% sales tax. To check if she has enough to purchase a book , Maria takes 25% of $26.50 and subtracts that amount from the normal price. She takes 10% of the discounted selling price and adds it back to find the purchase amount. Edwin takes 75% of the normal price and then computes 110% of the reduced price. Is maria correct? Is edwin correct? Do they have enough money to purchase the book? Explain your answer using complete sentences and show your work
