A merchant offers a large group of items at 30% off. Later, the merchant takes 20% off these sale prices and claims that the final price of these items is 50% off the original price. As a percentage of the original price, what is the difference between the true discount and the merchant's claimed discount? (Your answer should be a positive difference.)
