If I understand your question!

Take an item worth \$100. Discount this by 20% and you would get:

\$100 x 0.8 = \$80. Now, if the additional discount of 25% is in addition to the initial discount of 20%, then you would have this:

\$80 x 0.75 = \$60 - the final price of the \$100 item on the last day of sale. So, the overall sale rate would be: 100 - 60 = 40%.
