    whatever% of anything is just (whatever/100) * anything.

    so the socket set has a 40% off, what is 40% of 36? well, is just (40/100) * 36, or 14.4, that's the discount, so the sale price is 36 - 14.4, or 21.6.

    plus the 8.25% taxation, what is 8.25% of 21.6? well, is just (8.25/100) * 21.6, or 1.782.

    so the total price is 21.6 + 1.782, or 23.382, or about 23 bucks and 38 cents.

    36x0.4 = 14.4

    36-14.4=21.6

    21.6*.0825 = 1.782

    21.6+1.782 = 23.38
