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?

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.
