Tablets are on sale for 15% off the original price (t), which can be expressed with the function p(t) = 0.85t. Local taxes are an additional 8% of the discounted price (p), which can be expressed with the function c(p) = 1.08p. Using this information, which of the following represents the final price of a tablet with the discount and taxes applied based on its original price?

    Ok, If I saw a Victoria Secret panty for $5 (which I think is way over priced for this cheaply made crab), then I only pay 0.85(5). But then I have to pay sale tax (which I think is stupid), so I will need to pay 8% of what I pay. So in total, I pay 0.85(5) + 0.08 [ 0.85(5) ] Get it?
