I worked this two different ways and one way I get \$99 and the other I get \$98 What am I doing wrong? Can you show me the correct way to do this one?Answer by JimboP1977(308)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Assuming the original price of the leather coat is \$110? 10% off \$110 is 110-(110*0.1)= \$99 OR 110*0.90 = \$99 Does this answer your question or do you need further clarification?
