- Given: The successive discount are 20%, 10% and 15%.
- Formula: Successive discount = X + Y – (XY)/100. Where, X = First discount. Y = Second discount.
- Calculation: Successive discount = X + Y – (XY)/100. ⇒ 20 + 10 – 200/100. ⇒ 28% Now, again. Successive discount = X + Y – (XY)/100. X = 28%, Y = 15% ⇒ 28 + 15 – (28 × 15)/100.

## How do you calculate successive discount?

Total discount = (d + z – dz / 100) %

- Final discount = [28 + 30 – (28 x 30) / 100] % = (58 – 840 /100) % = 49.6%
- Which means Discount = 49.6% of 1000 = (49.6 / 100) x 1000 Rs 496.
- Selling price = M.P – Discount = 1000- 496 = 504.
