Answer:$78Step-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

$78from the original price.
