Edison Lee Does Percent!

One of my favorite cartoons is “The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee” http://edisonleecomic.com/

In today’s newspaper, there’s a great Edison Lee cartoon, and it’s tapping into the fear generated by the new Executive and his administration. And I developed it into a problem for my 6th graders.

Here goes:

According to one source, if you were to dig and build a storm or bomb shelter in the basement of a 1 family home, it would cost between $5,000 and $6,000.
If you could use the 25% savings that Edison Lee found in the newspaper, what would be the range in prices of a storm or bomb shelter?
Show all work and explain your thinking clearly!
