$8.40 is the discount and you subtract this from $28

so, it will cost the employee $19.60.

**Reiny**, Friday, April 3, 2009 at 3:33pmthe 28 represents 140% of the store cost

so the store cost = 28/1.4 = $20

(check: take 40% of 20, then added to 20 gives 28)

now 30% OFF the store cost means the cost would be 70% of the 20 or $14.00

long way: take 30% of 20, then subtract it from 20
