it would be $13.96 hope this helps
so it states that before the discount the proce was $39.95. before discount means the price was 100%. thus you want to find the sale price whereby you have to subract 15% from 100% to find the percentage left. 100%- 15%= 85% now 85% is the sale price. thereforw you need to find the amount that represent 85%. cost after discount: (39.95/100) × 85%= $33.9575 since money can only have 2 decimal place in maximum, you have to estimate. thus the answer will be $33.96.
