First one:

a discount of 15% and then 10% and then 15% off that amount

Step-by-step explanation:

15% discount means 100-15 = 85% is to be paid

10% discount means 100-10 = 90% is to be paid

25% discount means 100-25 = 75% is to be paid

Let X be the cost before discount

1st offer:

85% of 90% of 85% of X

(85/100) * (90/100) * (85/100) * X

= 0.65025X

2nd offer:

75% of X

(75/100) * X

= 0.75X

Since 0.65025 < 0.75,

Offer 1 is better
