A store offers a 15% discount on all items in the store during a sale. All store employees get an additional 10% employee discount. In the equation below, C represents the cost of an item for an employee including tax, and x represents the original price of the item.

\[C=.765\times 100+.06(.765\times 100)\] \[C=76.5+.06\times 76.5\] then a calculator would work, or you can be fancy and rewrite this as \[C=(1.06)\times 76.5\] but i would still use a calculator
