    Answer:

    D. $306.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If the dishwasher originally cost $450, then after applying 15% off, its price will be 100% – 15% = 85% of the original price:

    \dfrac{85\%}{100\%} *\$450

    0.85*\$450 = \$382.5

    Thus, during the 15% off sale, the dishwasher will cost $382.5.

    Now, the employees of the discount appliance store receive an additional 20% off; therefore, the price of the dishwasher will be 100% – 20% = 80% of $382.5:

    \dfrac{80\%}{100\%} *\$382.5

    0.8*\$382.5=\$306

    Therefore, the employee will purchase the dishwasher at a price of $306, which is choice D.
