that would be the amount off
im not understanding though, ive got x= .45x + .20x + 31.68???
sorry about the wait... dog got outside.
ok so where were we.. yeah so the equation is going to look like this:
x-.45x-.2(x-.45x)=31.68
-.45x is going to give you the amount of the discount
-.2(x-.45x) is going to give you the second discount.
putting everything together you will get: Original price- discounted price-the second discount=final sale price
all you have to do is solve for x
hope it helps
