Wheel’s Bicycle shop advertised a bicycle for 15% off for a savings of $36. The bicycle did not sell so it was offered at a new 20% discount off the sale price.
(a) What did the bicycle sell for regularly?
(b) What is the amount of the new discount?
(a) (0.15) x (regular price) = $36
Regular price = 36/0.15 = $240
(b) First sale price = 240 - 36 = $204.
Second discount = 0.20 x $204 = _____
