A $1000 stereo is on sale for 15% off. You have a $75-off coupon.

Since we already know the price, we can easily tell whether the $75-off coupon or

The cost with the $75-off coupon can be written as the function C(p) = p – 75,

where p is the price.

The cost with the 15% off sale option can be written as the function S(p) = .85p,

where p is the price.

explain your thinking.
