The DVD player has a list price of $210. It is marked down 30%. This makes its price $210 ( 1 - 30%)
=> $210( 1 - .3)
=> $210 * 0.7
John gets another 20% employee discount. So the price for him is
$210 * 0.7 * (1 - 20%)
=> $210 * 0.7 * (1 - .2)
=> $210 * 0.7 * 0.8
=> $117.6
Therefore John pays $117.6

Given that the original price of the DVD player is $210.
First we need to calculate the cost of the DVD player after the 30% off.
==> The sale price = original price - discount
==> Sale price = 210 - (30/100 * 210)
= 210 - 63 = 147
Then, the sale price = $147
Now we will calculate the employee discount which is 20% off the sale price.
==> Employee price = sale price - 20% discount
==> employee price = 147 - (20/100 * 147)
= 147 - 29.4 = 117.6
Then John pays $117.6
