  1. after first discount:
    cost = .8(149.99) = 119.99
    so yes, you qualify for the second discount.
    cost after second discount = .9(119.99)
    = 107.99

    total savings = 149.99 - 107.99 = $42.00

    none of the choices are correct, unless you have a typo in a)

  2. 149.99 * 0.8 = 119.99

    119.99 * 0.9 = 107.99
