    I don't see how your formula is related to the data given in the question

    cost to Chris before any sales tax is added would be
    100(.85)(.9) = 76.50

    (the single discount equivalent to consecutive discounts of 15% and 10% i
    >985)(.9) = .765
    Is there a sales tax of 6% which shows up in your formula, but is not mentioned in the question ? )
