How much will Olly pay for the shirt?

$62.40

When adding up all the discounts, it is 20%. In order to figure out how much he has to pay, you do 78 times 0.80 (since you’re only paying 80% of the money for the shirt). This gets you 62.4 which is 62.40 in cash.

Olly will pay 15.6 because 78 – 15% but you add your 5 percent that’s 20 percent so just do 78 – 20% and you will get 15 dollars and six cents
