A store purchased a coffee table and makred it up for 125% from the original cost of 20 dollars.  A week later, the store placed the coffee table on sale for 40%.  What was the discount price?

20*1.25*0.6 = 15

 

So the discount price is $15

$20 x [1 + 125%] ==20 x 2.25 ==$45 - marked up price

 

$45  x  [1 - 0.40] ==$45  x  0.60 ==$27 - the discount price of the coffee table.
