# Calculate the following net price factors and single equivalent discounts. Round to five places when necessary. Trade Single Discount Net Price Equivalent Rates Factor Discount ________ ________ 11. 35/15/7.5 ________ ________

To determine

To calculate: The net price factor and single equivalent discount if trade discount rates are 35/15/7.5. Round the answer to five decimal places when required.

Explanation

Given Information:

The trade discount rates are 35/15/7.5.

Formula used:

Follow the steps to compute the single equivalent discount:

Step 1: Look for the complement of the trade discount rates by subtracting each rate from 100% to compute the net price factor by multiplying all the decimals together.

Step 2: Then, compute the single equivalent discount by subtracting the net price factor by 1.

Single equivalent discount=1Net price factor

Calculation:

Consider that the trade discount rates are 35%, 15% and 7.5%.

Subtract each of the trade discount rate from 100% and then convert the answer to decimal form.

 100%−35%=65%=0
