I was just in a clothing store this weekend and there was a rack of
clothes that was 50%. The sales clerk said everything on that rack was
an additional 25% off, so it's 75% off the original price. I asked is
it 75% off the original price or 25% off the 50% of the price. Said
it's the same thing. I said no it's not. She insisted it was. I said
no, let's take a simple example. If it was $100 and it was 75% off it
would be $25. But if it's 50% off and then 25% off that it will be
$37.50. She looked totally dumbfounded.
