    Suppose that the cost of each of the origininal bools was $x per book
    So the cost was 50x
    He got a 10% discount, so the cost was (.9)50x
    = 45x
    but for 45x he actually got 60 books
    so the cost of each book was only 45x/60
    = 3x/4

    As a percentage: (3x/4) / x
    = 3/4 or 75%

    which would be an effective discount of 25%


    Illustration:
    suppose he ordered 50 books at $12 each
    cost would have been $600
    but he got a 10% discount, so his cost would have been $540
    But for $540 he got 60 books, so cost of each book
    = $540/60 = $9.00
    actual discount = $3.00
    rate of discount = 3/12 = .25 = 25%
