Four 60% Auras in life possible with 41% reduction and lv21 red mana?

I know the answer is NO, but i'm not 100% sure.

Well, with 41% reduction from tree and using a lvl20 reduced mana, it would be:

59% * 71%= 41,89%
41,89% * 60%= 25,13%

-So its not possible to use four 60% auras with lvl20 reduced mana.


With a lvl 21 reduced mana it would be:

59% * 70%= 41,3%
41,3% * 60%= 24,78

-It's theorically possible to use four 60% auras with lvl21 reduced mana.


And here it's my doubt, doing maths you get you can run four 60% auras with a lvl 21 reduced mana gem, but i've readen that % in auras rounds up, so it would be counted as 25% aswell. As i can't test it without a lvl 21 reduced mana, can someone tell me if i could run four 60% auras in that situation?

Thanks

Edit: I stand corrected. No, it isn't possible. I just tested it.

the problem is that your math is trying to combine the steps. each percentage is applied on the aura's "cost" separately.

so 60% *0.59 = 35.4% -> 36%
36% *0.71 = 25.56% -> 26%

or 36% *0.7 = 25.2% -> 26%
