  1. Find the discount and total...(I will do the last one)
    $290.50 3/10, 2/30 12 days
    means: there is a 3% discount if paid within 10, or a 2% discount if paid within 30 days.
    They paid after 12 days, so they get a 2% discount.
    So they have to pay 98% of original
    Total = $290(.98) = $284.20

    Compute the following multiple discounts....
    discount of 15% , then 5%
    single discount = 1 - .85(.95) = .1925 or 19.25%

    Find the markup and selling price...
    ( I will do the 2nd one)
    $7005.72 52%
    amount of markup = 7005.72(.52) = 3642.97
    Selling price = 7005.72 + 3642.97 = $10648.69

    15. markup = 75-49 = 26
    markup percent = 26/49 = .531 or 53.1%

    16.
    1.3(cost) = 95
    cost = 95/1.3 = $73.08

    Do not understand the remaining questions.
