### Charry's Percent Scribe Post

COMBINING PERCENT

1) Discount- What you save.
2) Sale Price- What you pay after discount.
3) Total Price- Sale Price and Taxes

How To get the Discount.
Make the percent to decimal. 25% ÷ 100= 0.25 Then,multiply the decimal to the original price.
0.25x\$75=\$18.75 so, the discount is \$18.75

How to get the Sale Price.
Subtract the original price and the discount to get the sale price. \$75-\$18.75= \$56.25 So, the sale price is \$56.25

How to get the Total Price.
The tax is depend to which country you are. So, our tax is 12% or 0.12 or 1.12
There's two ways to get the Total Price.
1) you can multiply the Sale price and our tax which is 0.12
So, \$56.25x0.12=\$6.75 then Add \$56.25+\$6.75 and you'll get \$63.
2) You can multiply the sale price and 1.12
\$56.25x1.12 and you'll get \$63
