Dents and Dings Auto Body buys paint with a list price of $29,000. If the supplier extends trade discounts of 30/35/20, what is the trade discount amount?

  • math -

    Trade discounts are calculated successively.

    Thus for a list price of $1000,
    net price
    = $1000(1-0.3)(1-0.35)(1-0.2)
    = $364

    Thus the trade discount amount (for a list price of 1000) is 1000-364=$636.

    For the list price of $29000, follow the same procedure.
