Answer / isha trivedi

100-20=80
100-25=75
100-90=90

now assume that the discount is given out of 100

so 80*75*90/100*100*100=0.54

Answer / uday

let the value of the product be =x
after 20%discount the value becomes=x-(.2x)=.8x
now 25%discount on this value is given by=(.8x)(1-.25)
another 10%discount gives the cost as =(.8x)(1-.25)(1-.10) so the final cost is .54x
hence discount =1-.54=.46
that is 46% discount
