Dean bought a nightstand that was marked down 20% from an original price of $25. If he paid 15% sales tax, what was the total cost of the nightstand?

OpenStudy (xguardians):

.8 (80% of original price) * $25 (Original Price) = 20$ (Step One) 20$ (Sale Price) * .15 (Tax Price) = $3 (Tax Amount) 20$ (Sale Price) + $3 (Tax Amount) = $23 (Final Sale) This should be the answer, if the tax comes after the discount. Have a nice day!
