regular price = 18
discount price is 15% of 18.....so for the discount , we turn percent to decimal, then multiply
discount = 18 * 0.15 = ??

correct...now thats the discount....for the discount price, we take original price minus discount......
discount price = 18 - 2.70 = ??

15.3?

- texaschic101

correct...thats the discount price
now we need to add 6% sales tax
first we find the sales tax by taking 6% of 15.30......turn percent to decimal, then multiply.
15.30 * .06 = ? (this is your sales tax)

.918
also why isnt sales tax .6? why the 0?

- texaschic101

0.918 is correct.....you can probably round it to 0.92.
6% tax....we turn it into a decimal by dividing by 100 = .06

- texaschic101

so we have discount price = 15.30
and sales tax = 0.92
for the total price, we add them...
15.30 + 0.92 = ? (total price)
