I would just say -4% + 8% but, The initial price P decreased by 4%, on monday the price was 0.96P You now increase the price on monday by 8%
Ok, but I don't get where the .96P comes from?
If you let the initial price be P, then the price on Monday will be 4% less, or 96% the original Price 0.96*P mondays price

Not sure if they are asking, "but by this current weekend, they have increased by 8%" Is that 8% increase of the original Price, or the Price on Monday
The price on Monday
ok, then you increase mondays price - (0.96)P by 8% Price on weekend is 108% of 96% of the original Price New Price = (1.08)*(0.96)*P
So the new price is 1.0368*P or 103.68% of last weekend price P
increase overall of 3.68%
good?
