**John**, Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 5:54pmWe need a 17% discount. We need a 5% discount as well. These discounts are on something valued at $89.

If you have a 17% discount, it means you get 100/100 - 17/100 = 83/100 off the original price.

In the same way, if you have a 5% discount, it means you have a 100/100 - 5/100 = 95/100 off the original price.

Combining these together, you multiply 83/100 * 95/100 * 89 dollars.

What is this equal to?

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 5:59pmJohn -- The 5% is not a discount but a tax.
