We need to find the total price of sketch books and acrylic paints after considering the given discounts. To do so, we will subtract the discounted price to the original price.

Recall that the total price is given as

$\text{Total price} =\text{Original price} - \text{Discounted price} \tag{1}$

where the discounted price can be calculated as

$\text{Discounted price}=\text{Original price} \cdot\text{Discount rate}$
