Another way to look at this problem is to realize that the item will be discounted by 27.8% of the list price.

We can calculate 27.8% of $213.14

  • (0.278)($213.14) = $59.25 (rounded to two decimal places)

Because this is the amount the item is discounted, we need to subtract this amount from the original list price.

  • $213.14 - $59.25 = $153.89

The net price is $153.89
