    We need a 17% discount. We need a 5% discount as well. These discounts are on something valued at $89.

    If you have a 17% discount, it means you get 100/100 - 17/100 = 83/100 off the original price.

    In the same way, if you have a 5% discount, it means you have a 100/100 - 5/100 = 95/100 off the original price.

    Combining these together, you multiply 83/100 * 95/100 * 89 dollars.
    What is this equal to?

    You're welcome.

    John -- The 5% is not a discount but a tax.

    Oh right, I'm sorry.
