Is taking 10% off a given item and then an additional 40% off the reduced price the same as taking 50% off the original price? Why or why not.

Taking 10% off a given item and then an additional 40% off the reduced price is the same as taking 50% off the original price because you already reduced the price by 10% and the took away an additional 40%, you end up taking away 50%.

10% + 40% = 50%

50% = 50%

Manta you need to think this through. What if your item cost $100. Take 10% off that. Then take 40% off the new price. Is this the same as 50% off.
