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 = 0.765x + 0.06(0.765x)
Chris is an employee at the store. He plans to buy a coat during the sale. The price of the coat before the discount is $100. How much will Chris pay for the coat during the sale?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[C=.765\times 100+.06(.765\times 100)\] \[C=76.5+.06\times 76.5\] 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
