What a steal of a Deal!

Hunter went to TV City to buy a new TV. When he got there, he found that the manager was offering a 25% discount on every TV in the store. The one Hunter wanted was last year's model so he got an additional 10% discount on his purchase. When he got to the cash, he found out he would save even more because the store offered a 5% discount for paying cash. The discounts were applied successivelky, and he paid \$371.93 for the TV. What was the original price before any discounts were taken? What was the total percent discount Hunter got?

Tot. % Disc. = 25 + 10 + 5 = 40.

100% - 40% = 60% Paid

0.60P = \$371.93,
P = \$619.88 = Original price.
