awhh man:( i just had one left.

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

  • math -

    This 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.

  • math -

    oh i forgot that part.so 72.80 x 0.15 = 10.92 then subtract that from 72.80 which equals 61.88, right??
