What is your first step?
posted by Ms. Sue

1. Multiply the original price by 0.25.
2. Subtract your answer from 125.
What do you get?
posted by Ms. Sue

Ok u should just add the per cents and u would get 40% so 40 in a decimal is 0.4 and divide that by 125 and u would get 36.25 so u would pay $36.25
