Answered A bicycle normally sells for 239.99 dollars. It is now on sale for 25% off. As an employee, Baron is able to save an extra 10% off the sale price. How much, to the nearest dollar, would Baron save off the normal price?


  1. Answer:


    Step-by-step explanation:

    Savings = (normal price) – (discounted price)

    If the item is 25% off, then the discounted price will be 75% of the original price: .75(239.99) = 179.9925.

    Baron also gets 10% off of this price, so the total discounted price will be 90% of the already-discounted price: .9(179.9925) = 161.99325.

                 = 239.99 – 161.99325

                 = 77.99675

    Rounding up, Baron saves $78 from the original price.
