a great dress is on the discount rack and you would love it for prom. the rack is marked 25%off the lowest price and you have a coupon for an extra 15% off. if the dress is marked $125, how much will you pay for it?

What would be your answer after all these problems?

Come on, Taylor. You can do this.
I'll be glad to check your answer. 
ok is it 75

No. Please try again.

idk im lost

What is your first step?

1. Multiply the original price by 0.25.
2. Subtract your answer from 125.
What do you get? 
Ok u should just add the per cents and u would get 40% so 40 in a decimal is 0.4 and divide that by 125 and u would get 36.25 so u would pay $36.25

No, Mia. You're wrong. Your answer is way off.
