Question:

An appliance originally costing $1,000 goes on sale one week for 25% off. The following week, it is discounted an additional 10%. What is the new sale price of the appliance?

A $675
Explaination

The discounted amount after the first week is $1,000 × 25% = $250, so the sale price is $1,000 – $250 = $750. The discounted amount after the second week is $750 × 10% = $75, so the sale price is $750 – $75 = $675.
