## Introductory Algebra for College Students (7th Edition)

If you paid $\displaystyle \frac{3}{2}$ of the original price, you paid $(1+\displaystyle \frac{1}{2})$ of the original price which is MORE than the original price. So, you did not save money, you overpaid. (Fractions with numerators greater than their denominators are greater than one unit). Does not make sense.
