I think ...your item total cost of your item (c) is being discounted by 5%.....because the .07 is your 7% sales tax.

So c-0.05c is the discount percent

.05 is the discount...which is 5%. It is what the price of the item would cost with the discount

c - .05c is the discount price....then you would multiply that by the .07 for the sales tax

Example... your item (c) costs $100. And you get a discount of 5% off of the item .07(c - .05c) = .07 (100 - .05(100) = .07 (100 - 5) = .07 (95) --- that 95 is the price of the item with the 5% discount 6.65 --- and this would be the sales tax
