Can you work out this numeracy question?
An Art portfolio was due on 14th April, with a late submission penalty of 3% per day.The Art teacher gave Jessie's portfolio a mark of 91%. However Jessie handed in her assignment a week late, on 21st April. What will Jessie's final mark be for her portfolio? Give the mark as a whole percentage.

How do you work it out?

[@585989,Melissa1101] You don't know how to?

[@427385,summerlove] no. Only thing I can figure out is 70%

73.5 or 70 depending on how you look at it

well I see 2 equivalent way to do this. 583-484=99 99 devided by 11=9 9+484=493 or 484x10=4840 4840+583=5423 5423 devide by 11 =493

oops I get 72%
Musicluver46-50, F
7 days at 3% a day = 21%

So she had 91% and you subtract 21% of the 91 and come up with 71.89%

If it is a compound 3% it is more tricky.
