A store has clearance items that have been marked down by 40%. They are having a sale, advertising an additional 45% off clearance items. What percent of the original price do you end up paying?

Assume the original price before any discounts ==$100

 

100%  -  40% ==60% first discount

 

$100  x  0.60 ==$60  - what you pay after first discount.

 

100%  -  45% ==55% secound discount

 

$60  x  0.55 ==$33 - what you pay after the second discount

 

$33 / $100 ==33% - percentage you end up paying after the two discounts.
