Number of socks bought = 2

Normal cost of socks = \$6

Normal cost of two socks = 6×2 = \$12

Discounted cost of socks = \$4

Discounted cost of 2 socks = 2× = \$8

Normal price to total item he bought = 34+12 = \$46

Discounted price of socks he bought = 34+8 = \$42

Saving percentage before tax = 100× (Normal price - discounted price)/normal price

= 100(46-42)/46

= 4×100/46
