### Don’t Stress over Sneaky Advertising

The Sneaky Advert exercise is to get you thinking mathematically about some of the tricks that can be used by advertisers to trick you into thinking that there are some great bargains to be had in the stores. Of course, sometimes there are. Other times, the sneaky adverts are to get customers in the door. For example, the add that states, “Up to 40% off” may mean that there is only one item that has the 40% off! Check out this website for more details and help with this homework.

I am having some trouble finding a sneaky ad.

I hope I can find one before maths tomorrow. 🙂

Yes, we will go over the homework book solutions tomorrow (oops, I mean today)

Thank for the question. I knew that you might find it difficult to locate a sneaky advert which is why I put up a link on the blog and handed out a great example in our last lesson. There is no assessment attached to finding the advert, but it will go towards your Term 1 Book Mark.
