Best Answer

15% of 99 is 14.85 so the amount you would be paying after 15% off would be

(99 - 14.85) = 84.15. An easier way for such problems is as follows. If you are getting 15% off of some amount, then it means that you have to pay only

(100 - 15)% = 85% of the original amount. So instead of finding 15% of 99 and then subtracting it from 99, just find 85% of 99 which is also (99) x (85/100) = 84.15 (you get the same answer).
