Q. What will be the single discount equivalent to three siluccessive discounts of 20%, 25%and40%


Answer :

Hi Aman,  Here is the solution.

Topic: Arithmetics and Percentage

Method:

Let initial amount be 100

Amount after first 20% discount = 80

Amount after second 25% discount =  0.75 * 80 = 60

Amount after third 40% discount =  0.6 * 60 = 36

Orginal amount was 100, Amount after discount is 36

Hence Single discount equivalent is  (100-36) = 64%
