Follow the steps to compute the net price using the net price factor:

Step 1: Look for the complement of the trade discount rates by subtracting each rate from 100% and converting them to decimal form.

Step 2: Compute the net price factor by multiplying all the decimals together.

Step 3: The net price is computed by multiplying the list price by net price factor.

Net price=List price×Net price factor
