The owner of a sporting goods store buys pairs of rollerblades for \$60 and marks them up 25%. Several months later, he decides o clear his inventory and sells each pair or rollerblades at a discount of 20%. What is the total price of a pair of these rollerblades with the discount and a 6% sales tax?

The price after markup is:
$60+0.25\left(60\right)=60+15=75$ ​
The marked-down pricing is as follows using the marked-up price: ​
$75-0.20\left(75\right)=75-15=60$
Using the discounted pricing, the final cost (including sales tax) is as follows: ​
$60+0.06\left(60\right)=60+3.60=63.60$
