Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by Kaylee on Thursday, March 27, 2008 at 6:14pm.

A big sale is happening today at the Newton Shoe Store. You buy two pair od running shoes. The first pair is $64, which is 20% off the original price. The second pair os $72, which is 40% off the original price. what is the persent of discount on the Combined purchase os the two pairs of shoes? (assuming no sales tax is involved)

I know that you have to find the original prices of the shoes, then, add that together, then add the percents together, and find the total percent, correct?
I don't know how to get to the original price, or how to find the end percent. Can anyone help?
Thanks!
