That could be some kind of math riddle!

10. ##### NanaKwameOpokuover 3 years ago

NATE!!! this is serious. How could you write that in a MATH TEST? this is funny and surprising at the same time. I never knew he could be so dumb.

11. ##### RonnieAThompsonPremium Memberover 3 years ago

Definitely \$63.

Doesn’t it depend on the state? Some states tax on the pre discount price, or used to anyway. That always seemed unfair to me.

i mean… he’s not wrong…

100-25=75

75% of 80 = 60

105% of 60 = 63

Why would anyone pay that much for a pair of tennis shoes? Mine cost \$30, at full price, and they’re just fine.

Sneak 100

The question is, will the sales tax be percentage of the discounted price or the original price?
