Step 1

Subtract each of the trade discount rate from \(\displaystyle{100}\%\) and then convert the answer to decimal form.

a) \(\displaystyle{100}\%-{26}\%={74}\%\)

\(= 0.74\)

b) \(\displaystyle{100}\%-{15}\%={85}\%\)

\(= 0.85\)

c) \(\displaystyle{100}\%-{5}\%={95}\%\)

\(= 0.95\)

Step 2

Compute the net price factor by multiplying all the above computed decimals together,

Net price factor \(\displaystyle={0.74}\times{0.85}\times{0.95}\)

\(= 0.59755\)

Hence, the net price factor is \(0.59755.\)

Compute the net price as follows.

\(\text{Net price}\ =\ \text{List price}\ \times\ \text{Net price factor}\)

\(\displaystyle={435.20}\times{0.59755}\)

\(= 260.05376\)

Hence, the prise is \(\displaystyle{260.05}\$\)

Subtract each of the trade discount rate from \(\displaystyle{100}\%\) and then convert the answer to decimal form.

a) \(\displaystyle{100}\%-{26}\%={74}\%\)

\(= 0.74\)

b) \(\displaystyle{100}\%-{15}\%={85}\%\)

\(= 0.85\)

c) \(\displaystyle{100}\%-{5}\%={95}\%\)

\(= 0.95\)

Step 2

Compute the net price factor by multiplying all the above computed decimals together,

Net price factor \(\displaystyle={0.74}\times{0.85}\times{0.95}\)

\(= 0.59755\)

Hence, the net price factor is \(0.59755.\)

Compute the net price as follows.

\(\text{Net price}\ =\ \text{List price}\ \times\ \text{Net price factor}\)

\(\displaystyle={435.20}\times{0.59755}\)

\(= 260.05376\)

Hence, the prise is \(\displaystyle{260.05}\$\)
