A store offers customers a 30% discount on the price $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ of selected items. Then, the store takes off an additional 15% at the cash register. Write a price function $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}P(x)\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ that computes the final price of the item in terms of the original price $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x.\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ (Hint: Use function composition to find your answer.)
