First, you multiply .1 times $45.00 to get $4.50. Subtract $4.50 from $45.00 and get $40.50. Then multiply .3 times $40.50 to get $12.15 and subtract that from $40.50 to get your final price of $28.35

If in a room with multiple people and an emergency situation occurs is it best to yell "someone call 911!" or to directly tell someone to call 911?

It is best to point to someone directly and tell them specifically to call 911. If you simply yell for anyone to call, then what is known as diffusion of responsibility occurs. This means that everyone else believes someone else will call and they don't need to.
