### Josh needs to buy a refrigerator.

He found one he likes is 25% off the original price, The store is also having a memorial day sale offering an addition 15% all sale items.
if the refrigerator originally costs \$1250,what will the total cost of the refrigerator cost including the sales tax of 8%?

First you will need to find the price with the 25% off.
To do that you take 1250(.25) which equals 312.5.
You would then take 1250-312.5 which equals 937.5.
that is your price with the 1st discount.
Then you go on to your next sale.
(15%)
To do this you take 937.5(.15) which equals 140.625.
You would then take 937.5-140.625 which equals 796.875.
(You don't simplify yet because it could mess up your total do it at the very end.)
Now that you have the discounts you need the tax.
For tax you would take 796.875(.08) which equals 63.75.
Then you would take 796.875+63.75 which equals 860.625.
You round, and that puts you at \$860.60.
