A store has clearance items that have been marked down by 55%. They are having a sale, advertising an additional 60% off clearance items. What percent of the original price do you end up paying?

Call the original price  P

A markdown of  55%  means  it is  worth  45%  of  P

And  a markdown of another  60%   means it is worth 40%  of    P(.45)

 

So

 

P (.45)  ( .40)   =  .18P

 

You end up paying 18% of the original price
