IXL Multi-step problems with Percents K.8?

A store originally purchased a DVD player at a cost of $24.40 and marked it up 80%. After a few weeks, however, the store discounted the DVD player 25% in order to make room for new merchandise. What was the discounted price?

Update:

I also need some help marking down.

Evelyn bought a toaster that was marked down 20% from an original price of $31.25. If she paid 12% sales tax, what was the total cost of the toaster?

    Mark up 80%

    That includes 100% of the original cost plus the 80% mark up

    24.40 * 1.8

    $43.92 

    --------------------

    Discount of 25%

    Means the player sells for 100% - 25% = 75% of the previous price

    43.92 * .75

    $32.94 <–––––– Discounted Price
