# A DVD player with a list price of \$210 is marked down 30%. If John gets an employee discount of 20% off the sale price. how much does he pay ? 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

Posted on 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
