    Help

    A BASKETBALL HOOP PRICED AT $110 WAS MARKED DOWN 15%. THREE WEEKS LATER IT WAS MARKED DOWN 10% FROM THE ALREADY REDUCED PRICE.

    WHAT IS THE PRICE OF THE HOOP FROM THE FIRST DISCOUNT?

    If the original price was 115$ and it was marked down 15%
    => it was sold at 85% of the original price.
    Hope you can find that.

    Similarly if it was again marked down 10 %
    => it was sold at 90% of (85% of 115$)

    Post a reply if you get stuck.
