Energy saving

They were released three different, independent inventions saving 12%, 15% and 25% energy. Some considered that while the use of these inventions, the total savings will be 12% + 15% + 25% = 52%. Is this true? How much percent of energy will save all three inventions together?

Correct result:

p =  43.9 %

Solution:

p=100(1(10.12)(10.15)(10.25))=43.9%
