A store owner buys coats for 56$ each. she adds 30% to the cost and sells the coat s at 15% off. find the selling price of each coat.

would i do 56 x 0.30 = 16.80

56.00 + 16.80 = 72.80

56.00 x 0.15 = 8.40

56.00 - 8.40 = 47.60

**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, November 1, 2008 at 11:02pmThis part is right!

56 x 0.30 = 16.80

56.00 + 16.80 = 72.80

So the price tag on the coats reads $72.80.

Then she takes 15% off of 72.80.

**jazz**, Saturday, November 1, 2008 at 11:04pmoh i forgot that part.so 72.80 x 0.15 = 10.92 then subtract that from 72.80 which equals 61.88, right??
