Well..so you have the shipment fee of 4.99 and the per pound fee of 0.65. So.. Lets look at the per pound fee. You have a piece of furniture that is 8 POUNDS. To find the total amount you need to pay for the whole piece of furniture you need to multiply 0.65 x 8 agree? 0.65 x 8= 5.20 Now we know that the piece of furniture costs $5.20 You buy that piece of furniture and its shipping price is $4.99 so now you have to add the shipping cost to the cost of the piece of furniture. that would be.. $4.99 + $5.20 = $10.19

That would be the total cost^

Lets step back into the way I taught it tho, and put it in full numbers.
