Is a 15 percent discount the same as 3 successive 5 percent discounts?

No, because successive discounts are taken on the discounted price after the first of the successive discounts. Therefore, 3 successive 5 % discounts will total to a smaller discount than one 15 % discount.


A store gives 10 percent discount to all students off the original cost additional 15 percent is taken off the discounted price Julie purchases a flute for 306 how much did it originally cost?

Discounted price was 360 (306/.85)Original price was 400 (360/.9)


How do you figure the how much percent was taken off the original price if you only have the original price and the sale price?

Sale price/original price will give you a fraction. The fraction x100 gives you the percentage that the sale price is of the original price.100-(that percentage) gives the percent taken off.


How do you figure out the original price if you have the current price and the amount of the discount?

Take the current price and add whatever the price that was subtracted off from the discount back to it and you will get the original price. If the current price of an item is $50 and had a 10% discount already taken off then dived 50 by 90% (50 / 0.9) which will give you $55.56 which is the original price before the discount. To check to make sure you did it correct take the original price, $55.56, and multiply it by 10% which will give you 55.56 * 0.1 = 5.56 and subtract that from the original; $55.56 - $5.56 = $50 which is the current price. If you have a calculator you can just enter $55.56 - 10% = $50 to check.


Why must you first calculate a discount price on an item before calculating the total sales tax on the item?

The discount must be calculated first to get the base price of the item, then the tax percentage would be taken into consideration, otherwise you would be charging additional tax on an item which should be discounted in the first place. If you were to calculate tax first then the discount price, your total would be incorrect.
