# Janet is buying a \$28 necklace. The store reduces the price by 20% and then applies a \$2 off coupon. How much will Janet pay for the necklace? Could you show the work please? I would really appreciate it.

Original cost of the necklace = \$28 Percentage by which the store reduces the price of the necklace = 20% Amount of discount given by the store on the necklace = (20/100) * 28                                                = 28/5 dollars                                                = 5.6 dollars So The price of the necklace after discount = (28 - 5.6) dollars                                                                  = 22.4 dollars Amount of discount on coupon = \$2 Then Price of the necklace after deducting coupon discount = (22.4 - 2) dollars                                                                                         = 20.4 dollars So Janet will pay 20.4 dollars for the necklace.
