## Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

after 15% discount = 12750- (15% of 12750 )= 10837.5
after discount of 25% = 10837.5 - (25% of 10837.5) = 8128.13
after discount of 15% = 8128.13 - (15% of 8128.13) = 6908.9

so total discount = \$12,750 - 6908.9 = 5841.1

pecentage = 5841.1/12750 *100% = 45.81%
