here's a tip for these types of problem. if you know that the discount if 40% off than there is still a 60% that you have to pay. do the total amount times the percent you still have to pay. that's 70 X .6 = 42

you change 40% to ".4" and multiply that by the price 70 x .4 = 28 and 70 - 28 = 42, you can also do it the way @Little-Ho did
