# Math Help - discount

1. ## Help

A BASKETBALL HOOP PRICED AT $110 WAS MARKED DOWN 15%. THREE WEEKS LATER IT WAS MARKED DOWN 10% FROM THE ALREADY REDUCED PRICE. WHAT IS THE PRICE OF THE HOOP FROM THE FIRST DISCOUNT? FROM THE SECOND DISCOUNT? 2. If the original price was 115$ 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.
