A store gives a staff discount of one fifth. How much would a member of staff pay for:

a) a camera with a retail price of £215?

just do 215 divided by 1/5 (0.20) and you'll have the amount in "pounds" (i think that's what that sign stands for)....if you need it in dollars i don't know how to convert it...sorry but that's as much as can help you.....but check google and type in something like "money convertor"

To calculate the amount a member of staff would pay for a camera with a retail price of £215, we need to apply the staff discount of one fifth.

To find one fifth of a value, we can multiply the value by the fraction 1/5 or divide it by 5. Both methods will give you the same result.

Method 1: Multiplication
£215 * (1/5) = £215 * 0.2 = £43

Method 2: Division
£215 / 5 = £43

So, the member of staff would pay £43 for the camera after applying the one-fifth staff discount.
