Hi there.

I think it's £288 - I'm not a mathematician so please correct me if I'm wrong.

10% of £360 = £36
20% = 2 x £36 = £72

As £360 = 100% i.e. the full price
We take off 20% from this which is £72
£360 - £72 = £ 288

Hope this helps.

No - sorry.

I imagine it's more likely to be non calculator though.
