Math Question Dealing With Percentage?

The question is:
“A coat initially sells at the price of $136. It is on sale with successive discounts of 20% and 10%. What is the sale price?”
Do I add the percentage together and get 30% and then cross multiply, or something else? I forgot how to solve with this type of strategy.

    I think that its discounted again, like you discount once for the firs 20% then you discount again for the 10%. If that were it, then you would multiply by 0.8 first, (-20%) then you would multiply the answer to that by 0.9 (-10%)
    136 times 0.8 times 0.9 is 97.92
