A shirt goes on sale for 80% of its original price. One week later, the sale price is marked down 10%. The final price is what percent of the original price?

A. 72%
B. 70%
C. 52%
D. 50%
E. 28%

Just assume original price is 100.
Sale price = 80
Then it is marked down by 10% = 80-8=72.

Hence it is 72% od the original price. Hence answer is A.

consider the original price of the shirt to be $100
during the sale its price is 80% of original price = $80
marking down the price by further 10% = 0.9 * 80 = $ 72
so final price is 72% of original price
correct answer - A

Let Original Price be 100

First discount is 20% & Selling price is 80

Second discount is 10%

Thus effective discount will be -

\(-20-10-\frac{(-20)(-10)}{100}= 28\)

So, Final price will be 100 - 28 = 72, Answer must be (A)

Let the price be 100.
20%discount in 100 = 80
10% discount in 80 ,=72.
Therefore 72 is the 72% of 100

let, the original price of the shirt =x
during the sale its price is 80% of original price = 0.8*x
marking down the price by further 10% = 0.9 * 0.8*x= 0.72*x = 72 *x /100
so, final price is 72% of original price.
