    Find 35% of 35. First, turn 35% into a decimal by dividing by 100.

    35% ⇒ 0.35

    Now multiply 0.35 by 35.

    35 * 0.35 = 12.25

    Subtract 12.25 from 35 to find the discounted price of the lamp.

    35 - 12.25 = 22.75

    Now find the amount of sales tax by repeating the first two steps but with 8% and 22.75.

    8% ⇒ 0.08

    Multiply 0.08 by 22.75.

    22.75 * 0.008 = 1.82

    The tax is $1.82, now we need to add it to 22.75.

    22.75 + 1.82 = 24.57

    Answer:

    The total price for the lamp is $24.57.
